This adds authentication to django.contrib.comments.

Project description


To make sure no bad hacker adds a comment with no authentication, you have to install a small app called django-contrib-comments-auth:

pip install django-contrib-comments-auth

Add it to the INSTALLED_APPS:

Add these lines to your root

    urlpatterns = patterns('',
# ...
(r'^comments/', include('commentsauth.urls'),
(r'^comments/', include('django.contrib.comments.urls'))

It must be before the django.contrib.comments.urls-directive and have the same prefix.

The template for the comment-form could look like:

    {% load comments %}
    {% if request.user.is_authenticated %}
    <h2>Leave a comment</h2>
    {% get_comment_form for object as form %}
<form action="{% comment_form_target %}" method="POST">
    {{ form.comment }}
    {{ form.honeypot }}
    {{ form.content_type }}
    {{ form.object_pk }}
    {{ form.timestamp }}
    {{ form.security_hash }}
    <input type="submit" value="Add comment" id="id_submit" />
    {% else %}
    <h1>Display login form or link to login page!</h1>
    {% endif %}
