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:

    {% get_comment_form for object as form %}
<form action="{% comment_form_target %}" method="POST">

    {{ form.security_hash }}
    <input type="submit" value="Add comment" id="id_submit" />
    {% else %}
