#13146 closed New feature (wontfix)

Remove hardcoded stuff in contrib.admin

Reported by: utku Owned by: utku
Component: contrib.admin Version: 1.1
Severity: Normal Keywords:
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: yes


There're lots of unnecessary hardcoded elements with the Admin which makes it hard to customize. Some examples: (hardcoded image) (template/widget instead) (move to template) (hardcoded image, including width and height, this should go to CSS)

IMO, getting rid of almost all hardcoded elements is the base for a more extensible, customizable and easier to change/adapt interface (PK).

  • milestone set to 1.3

Seems easy enough to fix and make people's lives easier.

  • milestone 1.3 deleted

This is a fine idea, but without a patch this has no chance to make it in 1.3. Also, the line numbers in your description are probably outdated. It'd be useful if you could provide more details about those hardcoded things you're actually referencing.

The admin has been recently refactored with a new design. IMHO this ticket is nowadays unfortunately no longer actionable. Feel free to open new tickets with more descriptive stuff.
