Getting Django admin url for an object


Before Django 1.0 there was an easy way to get the admin url of an object, and I had written a small filter that I'd use like this: <a href="{{ object|admin_url }}" .... > ... </a>

Basically I was using the url reverse function with the view name being 'django.contrib.admin.views.main.change_stage'

reverse( 'django.contrib.admin.views.main.change_stage', args=[app_label, model_name, object_id] )

to get the url.

As you might have guessed, I'm trying to update to the latest version of Django, and this is one of the obstacles I came across, that method for getting the admin url doesn't work anymore.

How can I do this in django 1.0? (or 1.1 for that matter, as I'm trying to update to the latest version in the svn).

Best Solution

You can use the URL resolver directly in a template, there's no need to write your own filter. E.g.

{% url 'admin:index' %}

{% url 'admin:polls_choice_add' %}

{% url 'admin:polls_choice_change' %}

{% url 'admin:polls_choice_changelist' %}
