If things don't go smoothly, the first thing to do is run the tests to see if they can determine what's wrong. To enable the tests you'll need to add django-hoptoad to your INSTALLED_APPS setting:

    # ... other apps ...
    # ... other apps ...

Once you've done that you can run the unit tests:

python test hoptoad

NOTE: The unit tests are very simple at the moment. I'm working on more, but please feel free to submit ideas (or better yet: patches).
