#3091 closed enhancement (fixed)

[patch] Views in django.contrib.comments should allow 'extra_context' and 'context_processors' arguments

Reported by: eric@… Owned by: __hawkeye__

Easy pickings: UI/UX:


The current django.contrib.comments view code does not allow passing in additional context.

This patch adds extra_context and context_processors parameters to the django.contrib.comments views. I had the need to pass additional context for my templates into the comments "generic" views, and wanted to be able to pass the context in the same way I can for the other generic views. This patch to allows this.

With this patch, comments work the same way as other generic views. For example, to pass additional context in you may do:

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    (r'^comments/', include('django.contrib.comments.urls.comments'), {'extra_context': {'extra': 123}}),

No backwards incompatible changes.

This change seems like a good idea, so promoting directly to 'Ready for checkin'. I won't be offended if it gets bumped to design decision needed though.
