Overwriting context_object_name in list views

Description (last modified by Mariusz Felisiak)

I have found that when I override the context object name in a ListView it is impossible for me to iterate correctly in a for loop in the template. For example, if I am writing a list view called 'Services' and override the context object name as 'services', using the for loop as follows:

    {% for service in services %}
            {{ }}
            {{ service.description }}
    {% endfor %}

I find that instead of iterating over the number of items that I have stored in the database, it does so over a crazy number of items that I don't know what they are related to.

The same code works perfectly on Django 3.xx, and I can iterate normally in the loop if I use the 'object_list' which its provided by default.

Hi, I don't think you've explained the issue in enough detail to confirm a bug in Django. Please reopen the ticket if you can debug your issue and provide details about why and where Django is at fault, or if you can provide a small project that reproduces this issue.
