#13344 closed Bug (wontfix)

Name collision for "next" template variable between contrib.comments and views.generic.list_detail

Reported by: Erik Stein Owned by: nobody

Both the comment system (in post_comment and it's accompagnying forms) and the generic views system (in views.generic.list_detail's legacy template context stuff) use a template variabled named "next". The comment app's templates approve.html, delete.html, flag.html and preview.html render a hidden form field if next is not empty.

If you use for example the list_detail view with a template which renders a comment form for each list item, the comment form wrongly uses the next-value from the list_details view (the next page number). On posting the comment the user get's an 404 error, because the post_comment view now tries to redirect to a wrong URL containing the next page number.

Maybe it's generally a bad idea to use very simple context variable names like next in prepackaged apps.

django.contrib.comments has been deprecated and is no longer supported, so I'm closing this ticket. We're encouraging users to transition to a custom solution, or to a hosted solution like Disqus.

The code itself has moved to; if you want to keep using it, you could move this bug over there.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
