Solved [No FlatPages matches the given query] #Django

After following most of the solutions provided, the most important factor you should consider that is not indicated in the django docs is that of SITE_ID = 1.

By default Django provides on the admin panel for Sites, "example.com" . When adding flatpages one may tend to add his own site and most tutorials will dictate that you use SITE_ID = 1 on settings.py .

What the don't tell you is that "example.com" site is by default 1. SO what you should do is edit the "example.com" site to 127.0.0.1:8000 and there you have it.

Remember to also add
url.py

    # last entry in urls.py. 
(r'', include('django.contrib.flatpages.urls')),

settings.py`
