Add the line shown, or something similar, to your settings/dev.py, so that you can more clearly see when django is silently hiding errors in your template tags.

TEMPLATE_STRING_IF_INVALID = 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX'

<p>Don't forget that you can insert '%s' as a placeholder for the template variable name. It's usefull to pinpoint bugs. For instance :</p> <p>TEMPLATE_STRING_IF_INVALID = '{{ %s }}'</p>
