#6909 closed (fixed)

Suggested import does not work with translation on

Reported by: evenrik Owned by: nobody
Component: Documentation Version: newforms-admin
Severity: Keywords: nfa-blocker
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: UI/UX:


A proposal convention: Specifying all admin options in a file called, and import it in the file of your application module to do the registering during the initialization.

Adding the import there gave an error when I18N = True in my file:
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute '<app name>'

This seems to be the same issue as #3860 which says "It's not really a bug but a rather an undocumented quirk." I moved the import into my file and the error went away.

  • Keywords nfa-blocker added
  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset

This needs to be sorted out before merge, can't be recommending a convention that doesn't work for internationalization.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

(In [7872]) newforms-admin: Added autodiscover functionality to django.contrib.admin. This makes the admin aware of per-app modules and does an import on them when explicitly called. Docs show how this is used. Fixed #6003, #6776, #6776.

Should have said #6909 in place of one #6776 ;)
