Allow custom message to be set in the create/update/delete generic views

Easy pickings: UI/UX:


The views in django.views.generic.create_update automatically creates the message "The %(verbose_name)s was deleted." It would be nice to have an additional argument to these views called "message" where users could set their own message. For instance, I'm using the message '%(verbose_name)s "%(object_name)s" successfully deleted' in my views.

  • Has patch set

I attempted to create a small patch to add on this functionality. It processes the string passed to it as a template and renames model._meta to model.meta. If something doesn't work, I apologize as this is my first attempt at a patch to django.

The introduction of class-based views in [14254] will allow you to do this.
