[GeoNode-devel] Cannot upload simple KML from Google Earth

Hi all

In Geonode 2.4, I'm experimenting with KML upload after setting:


    'BACKEND' : 'geonode.importer',

    'OPTIONS' : {

        'TIME_ENABLED': False,

        'GEOGIT_ENABLED': False,


Using KML with Google Earth on Windows 7, I created a trivial KML with <Point>, <LineString>and <Polygon>: Temporary Places.kml<https://github.com/GeoNode/geonode/files/762710/Temporary.Places.kml.txt> (added '.txt' suffix so I can link it here)

The upload completes OK but the polygons and lines are not loaded.

It only seems to work with points, and only then after I strip the <LookAt> elements from the KML with an editor: Temporary Places - points only no lookat.kml<https://github.com/GeoNode/geonode/files/762708/Temporary.Places.-.points.only.no.lookat.kml.txt>

The Geoserver log shows an error, but that appears even when it works OK (i.e. with points and no LookAt):

ERROR [geoserver.rest] - No such layer: Temporary_Places
