#8001 closed New feature (fixed)

Make redirection URLs customizable in ModelAdmin views

Description

As originated in [1], the ModelAdmin's save_add method has a post_url_continue argument to customize what page you should be
redirected to after saving a new object. This is very useful, but all other redirects are hard coded in all the views, including the save_add and save_change methods. Currently, those methods assume that there is only one standard way to route URLs in admin. This is a major drawback if you want to customize the URL scheme of your application's admin.

The proposed patch moves all hard-coded URLs to arguments of the corresponding methods. Those arguments are set to a default value, so the change is backward compatible. The benefit here, is that you can re-use the views and control where the user is redirected to after the view is processed.

This is a good idea and something needed by the admin, but as a "feature addition" it's a post-1.0 thing.

I've attached a patch for this. Mostly to know if I'm interpreting Julien and Russell (in #18310) correctly and to start discussion about if this is an approach we want to pursue.
