Often people use a
…Model suffix for their model, for example:
from django.db import models class CarModel(models.Model): # … pass
Why is it a problem?
Because objects from a model are not models, these are cars, not car models. Django will also construct verbose named based on the name of the class. Indeed, unless you specify
verbose_name [Django-doc] and
verbose_name_plural [Django-doc] yourself, Django will "unsnake" the name and thus give a verbose name like:
>>> CarModel._meta.verbose_name 'car model' >>> CarModel._meta.verbose_name_plural 'car models'
This thus means that Django will ask questions in the model admin like:
Are you sure you want to remove this car model?
What can be done to resolve the problem?
…Model suffix. Django models are not supposed to have a
…Model suffix, so:
from django.db import models class Car(models.Model): # … pass
