#5532 closed (duplicate)

Adding user via admin site doesn't work if TEMPLATE_STRING_IF_INVALID is defined

I use TEMPLATE_STRING_IF_INVALID during development to catch quickly errors in my templates. However this breaks the "Add user" functionality of the admin interface. That's because "form_url" is not defined in the template parameters of user_add_stage in
django/contrib/admin/views/ ... and thus the template creates a form with a bad action parameter (instead of letting the parmater empty).

There might be other similar instances elsewhere in the code, I haven't checked.

Other previous similar reports have been closed as duplicates of #3579. Considering the admin app in it's current form is being deprecated and no effort is being put in doing large scale bugfixes, I suspect this reliance in empty a TEMPLATE_STRING_IF_INVALID value won't be fixed.

I don't know if this also applies to newforms-admin though.

Going to close this as a dupe of #3579.
