Please post the full text of the error message you are receiving.

So this is a message you’re receiving in your IDE and not as a result of running runserver?

Yes it is in VSCode as I am writing the function based view from the example in the documentation.

Ok, so that’s a configuration issue with your project in VSCode. It’s not an actual problem in your application. You can fix it if you wish, but it’s not going to prevent you from working on your project.
(And no, I don’t know how to fix it. It’s never bothered me enough to worry about it. However, it’s most likely related to the “Interpreter” configured for your project. You should be using the instance of Python that’s in your venv.)

ok yes other places where I import hose same packages I do not get that error. I will ignore unless I start getting run time errors.
