#17362 closed New feature (wontfix)

include with filename unquoted fails silently

Reported by: adrian_nye@… Owned by: nobody

Description

{% include overview_views.html %}

obviously should be:

{% include "overview_views.html" %}

But if the quotes are missing, the file is not included and there is no error message.

It would be better to include the file anyway if possible, and
if that is not possible then display an error message.

Marking as wontfix. The template engine failing without an error message is a design choice -- one of the design choices of the Django template language is that it is better to show a partially rendered page than to show a page with an error.

We can't magically interpret around missing quotes, either. Unquoted, the argument means "look for a variable with this name"; quoted, it means "use this literal file name".
