url template tag should work exactly like reverse(). It should also resolve the url pattern name.

Dupe of #3769

I don't see how this is a dupe of anything. More precisely, I don't really understand what it is saying. Which features of reverse() are missing and needed in the url template tag?

Reopening for the time being until more information is available.

in urls.conf you can define names for url patterns like:

(r'^accounts/profile/$', 'baklava.reiloy.shared_page.profile', {}, "profile")

reverse("profile") resolves to /accounts/profile/

{% url "profile" %} resolves to empty.

Leave out the quotes. The url tag is a slightly odd duck, in that literal strings are not parsed (because it only handles literal strings). You use a pattern name just like a view function name.

If you look in tests/regressiontests/templates/, you can see a few examples of pattern names being used.
