From Django 1.2, removing CSRF protection for a subclassed admin site is difficult and messy. (Some of my subclassed admin sites use no authentication and allow direct posting from external applications - CSRF protection is therefore inconvenient to say the least).

It would be nice if there was a clean simple way to completely turn CSRF off in sub-classed admin sites. E.g:

class MyAdminSite(AdminSite):

csrf_protection = False

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

Properly formatted eg:

class MyAdminSite?(AdminSite?):

    csrf_protection = False

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

Turning off CSRF protection in the admin should *not* be easy: it's a bad idea in 99% of the cases, and making bad things easy isn't a design goal.
