Description

Going from the documentation at https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/4.1/howto/custom-lookups/#a-lookup-example, I created the custom lookup exactly as shown there. I then registered it in an AppConfig.ready(). When django starts I get the exception AttributeError: 'function' object has no attribute 'cache_clear'.

python manage.py runserver 0.0.0.0:8000
timestamp=None level=None event='Watching for file changes with StatReloader' logger=None

Registering custom lookups in an app config's ready works ok for me. You may need to paste copies of your code/setup to show how you're registering it.

Additionally you can seek help from a wider audience using one of the Django support channels: https://www.djangoproject.com/community/
