Description

ViewDoesNotExist exception is being raised even though my view function is correctly placed in the django view (views.py file). Upon further inspection I discovered there was an AttributeError being raised in one of my imported modules (a forms.py call to a missing model form's model). More testing revealed that raising an AttributeError anywhere in the django view *or* in any imported module before the view function that is executed generates a ViewDoesNotExist exception.

Here's my traceback...

I know this sort of error reporting has been much improved in Django 1.5, please test with a recent Django and reopen if you can still reproduce.

I know this sort of error reporting has been much improved in Django 1.5, please test with a recent Django and reopen if you can still reproduce.

Thanks, I could confirm for you that this particular error reporting issue is fixed in 1.5. You could update the ticket to reflect that if you want.
