TemplateDoesNotExist for templates in local apps

Ok, I do hope this one is a valid bug ticket!

Since the update from 3.1.8 to 3.2 I get a TemplateDoesNotExist error for alle templates not living in the main template folder but within my local apps.

Project structure:

Apps live under: myproject/apps/
Main template dir: myproject/templates
Templates for an app live under: myproject/apps/myapp/templates

My config:

        'BACKEND': 'django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates',
        'DIRS': ['templates'],
        'APP_DIRS': True,
        'OPTIONS': {
            'context_processors': [

When I run my tests under 3.1.8, it works. When I update to 3.2 and run them, it throws the TemplateDoesNotExist exceptions.

I'd be happy to assist in any way possible.

I think the issue is that DIRS isn't an absolute path. If that worked in previous versions, it was probably only by chance.

Yes, DIRS should contain full paths as documented, so in your case 'DIRS': [BASE_DIR / 'templates']. It works for me with the described project structure. Please use one of support channels if you still have an issue with templates.
