Improper Django Project error

Hi all

Being new to Django and Python, I have two projects setup side by side, 
each in it's own virtualenv wrapper.
The twr_project is running Django 1.7, python 2.7 and is set up to 
duplicate the 'Tango With Rango' tutorial.
The archivedb project is running Django 1.8, python 2.7 and is my actual 

I am using Ninja-IDE as my IDE. I like it a lot.

At this point both projects are essentially identical with the exception 
of name changes. The twr project work down to the first template 
inclusion ( index.html ). The archivedb project refuses to find the 
home.html template file. The system layout is exactly the same.

I wiped the home.html file and attempted to re-install it but my IDE 
gave the following error window:

> Sorry, either settings file or virtualenv are missingthese are 
> required for Django Plugin to work in thepresent version, we are 
> working on fixing this.
I have virtualenv installed and active and the settings file is present. 
In any case, the IDE won't let me save the home.html file without some 
fiddling. Even if I get the file saved the web server can't find it. 
(file not found error). The only difference between index.html (Django 
1.7) and home.html (Django 1.8) is the name changes.

I have inserted print statements in the url tree to try debugging this 
but all the path information returned seems reasonable.

Is this a bug in Ninja-IDE, Django 1.8 or is it something else.

If you need more information, please let me know
