+.. admonition:: Flatpages will not apply view middleware
+ Because the ``FlatpageFallbackMiddleware`` is applied only after
+ URL resolution has failed and produced a 404, the response it
+ returns will not apply any :ref:`view middleware <view-middlware>`
+ methods. Only requests which are successfully routed to a view via
+ normal URL resolution apply view middleware.
Note that the order of :setting:`MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES` matters. Generally, you can
put :class:`~django.contrib.flatpages.middleware.FlatpageFallbackMiddleware` at
the end of the list, because it's a last resort.
