#18072 closed Cleanup/optimization (fixed)

ChangeList shouldn't use hardcoded urls

Some urls are still hardcoded in admin: ChangeList.url_for_result returns implicit relative url

Noticed this while implementing custom AdminSite that shows a changelist of one of the models as an index page (edit links were incorrect):

class RestaurantPanel(admin.AdminSite):
    main_model = None

    def index(self, request, extra_context=None):
        model_admin = self._registry[self.main_model]
        return model_admin.changelist_view(request, extra_context)

This ChangeList subclass fixed the issue for me:

class FixedChangeList(ChangeList):
    def url_for_result(self, result):
        admin_name =
        pk = getattr(result, self.pk_attname)

        return reverse("%s:%s_%s_change" % (
            admin_name, self.opts.app_label, self.opts.module_name
        ), args=[pk])

Ran into the same problem here. There're also other instances of hardcoded urls in the ModelAdmin.response_add and ModelAdmin.response_change, which I think can go into the same fix.

In f51eab796d087439eedcb768cdd312517780940e:

Fixed #18072 -- Made more admin links use reverse() instead of hard-coded relative URLs.

Thanks kmike for the report and initial patch for the changelist->edit
object view link URL.

Other affected links include the delete object one and object history
one (in this case the change had been implemented in commit 5a9e127, this
commit adds admin-quoting of the object PK in a way similar to a222d6e.)

Refs #15294.
