#3694 closed (duplicate)

admin docstrings not added to doc pages because of stringfilter decorator

The decorator stringfilter in overrides the docstrings, making the documentation for those filters in /admin/doc/filters/ empty.

This is similar to #1840, but in a different component and with a different side effect, however the discussion there might prove useful in resolving this. A possible (ugly)solution may be to call stringfilter inside all the filters which need it, rather than decorating.

Would another solution be to make the decorator _dec.__doc__ = func.__doc__?

Marking this a dup of #5701 since the patch there fixes this.
