#16463 closed Bug (invalid)

comment_form_target throws "Could not import django.contrib.syndication.views.feed" error, no such reference to feed found

Reported by: jasper@… Owned by: nobody

Severity: Normal Keywords:

I'm getting the following when trying to render a template with {% comment_form_target %} in it.

"Caught ViewDoesNotExist while rendering: Could not import django.contrib.syndication.views.feed. View does not exist in module django.contrib.syndication.views."

The log is here

I have replaced all references to the deprecated

from django.contrib.syndication.views import Feed

and replaced it with

from django.contrib.syndication.feeds import Feed

I also can't find any references to the old Feed, this is why I believe this to be a bug. Will provide more information if needed of course.

I found that there was a typo in my code; django.contrib.syndication.views.feed should have been django.contrib.syndication.views.Feed. However, I got this code from an svn source I have access to, from an existing site I'll be going to manage soon. I'm running svn, while the server the site is on currently runs django v1.2.something, on the same code, with .feed instead of .Feed. Shouldn't there be some kind of deprecation warning here too?

Yeah, see the deprecation timeline under 1.4.

I understand, but the error Django returns gives very little information. Or has there been a deprecation error in 1.3 but did I mis it because I just got the code and moved to svn right away?
