I have the following:
answers = Answer.objects.filter(id__in=[answer.id for answer in answer_set.answers.all()])
for i in range(len(answers)):
# iterate through all existing QuestionAnswer objects
for existing_question_answer in existing_question_answers:
# if an answer is already associated, remove it from the
# list of answers to save
if answers[i].id == existing_question_answer.answer.id:
answers.remove(answers[i]) # doesn't work
I get an error:
'QuerySet' object has no attribute 'remove'
How can I remove an item from the QuerySet so it doesn't delete it from the database, and doesn't return a new QuerySet (since it's in a loop that won't work)?
