Hi Renata,

I strongly suggest you to use the geonode_project to customize geonode and
add your apps, see https://github.com/GeoNode/geonode-project/tree/2.4.

For your questions:
- here a guide on how to use multiple database on django
- the geonode database already have postgis installed, if you installed
geonode via apt-get you will get two databases, one is called geonode and
the other geonode-data and this one has postgis installed. In any case you
can always install postgis with $ psql -d yourdb -c "CREATE EXTENSION

Hope this helps

> -- creating a new app (with python manage.py startapp ...), a models.py
> with our tables and using python manage.py syncdb --database=ourDB,
> Geonode re-create all django tables + our tables in the *public* schema
> of ourDB ('cause there's no info in local_settings about what schema is
> connected ourDB);
> -- but these new tables in ourDB/public are not seen by
> server_ipaddress/admin, but they are seen only if we create them in the
> schema geonode(=default)/public;
> -- so we thought we could put ourSchema inside geonodeDB or all its
> tables/layers in the geonode/public schema (even if we don't like this
> solution too much...), but ourSchema contains layers and geonodeDB has no
> postgis extensions so we couldn't.
> At the end, some desperate questions:
> -- is it possible to connect django server_ipaddress/admin to tables in a
> different DB (putting some connection string in the app directly, for
> example);
> -- is it possible to install postgis extension on geonodeDB?
> Thanks!
