Make contrib.comments form customizable

Currenly there is no way to customize widgets on django.contrib.comments.forms.CommentDetailsForm and a trivial task leads to creating a copy of django.comments.

The two ways to solve this that I have in mind is either to make more settings similar to COMMENT_MAX_LENGTH and the other one is to create a new setting COMMENT_FORM that can provide a completely custom comment form.

I'm proposing that django.contrib.comments be deprecated and removed, so I'm going to place this ticket on hold until that's been decided.

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

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.
