        if not page:
            page = request.GET.get('page', 1)
            page_number = int(page)
        except ValueError:
            if page == 'last':
                page_number = paginator.num_pages
                # Page is not 'last', nor can it be converted to an int.
                raise Http404
            page_obj =
        except InvalidPage:
            raise Http404

Let me check this case when i have a page with this url


on page ten i have 3 objects showed.

if i delete 3 objects the page its invalid not a Http404, because the page exist before erase ...

its better do the same validator a example on paginator, if the page not exist get the latest page/objects.

This is an intentional behavior, not a bug. A missing page is a 404.

I came across the same problem.
User delete some objects and then redirect to the previous page, got a http404.
It would be better if we can control the behavior. (get the last page as zodman said or something else)
And all those date-based generic views have the "allow_empty" argument so that this behavior can be controlled by programmer.

You can control the behavior. Write your own wrapper function. In any event if you disagree the closure of a ticket by a core developer please do not reopen it, instead start a discussion on the django-developers mailng list.
