comment redirect does not work with preview

I'm using rev. 10790, the latest version as of the time this ticket was submitted.

The django docs say that you can redirect after a comment is posted by including a field like this in your comment form:

<input type="hidden" name="next" value="{% url my_comment_was_posted %}" />

However, this is incorrect. The post_comment view in django.contrib.comments.views.comments does not preserve this field for the comment preview form. Thus in the preview form template, the next variable is always None. The reason why is clear:

def post_comment(request, next=None):

There is never a "next" keyword argument passed to this view, so next is always None.

  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset

Can you please upload a real patch (run svn diff from the root of your Django SVN checkout)? This isn't a patch (it's just the whole file), so it's impossible to see what's changed.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

On further review, don't bother: this isn't a bug. The redirect handling is handled in django.contrib.comments.views.utils.next_redirect; the value of next is first taken from request.POST, and then from the variable passed to the view.

Actually this is a bug. django.contrib.comments.views.utils.next_redirect is never called if the preview template gets rendered which means that in the preview template next is always none.
