    ...
)

In your urls.py add the urls entry:

url(r'^', include('knowledge_share.urls', namespace='microblog')),

In your microblog/models.py create your models by inheriting from the abstract models:

# customize those models as needed
from knowledge_share import models as knowledge_share_abstract_models


class MicroBlogPost(knowledge_share_abstract_models.MicroBlogPostBase):
    pass


class MicroBlogCategory(knowledge_share_abstract_models.MicroBlogCategoryBase):
    pass

Then create and run your migrations:

python manage.py makemigrations
python manage.py migrate
