Django delete_selected action in ModelAdmin not allow you to add operations before and after deleting objects from database by default.
Default delete_selected action using delete method of queryset so need to use pre_delete and post_delete signals.
Disable delete_selected action for all applications and models, but for some models this is crazy.
The easiest way to install package is with pip!
You can install from PyPI (for Django==1.4):
$ pip install django-custom_delete_selected
Or GitHub for Django==1.4:
$ pip install -e git+https://github.com/saippuakauppias/django-custom_delete_selected.git@django_v1.4#egg=custom_delete_selected
Or GitHub for Django==1.3.x:
$ pip install -e git+https://github.com/saippuakauppias/django-custom_delete_selected.git@django_v1.3.x#egg=custom_delete_selected
Or from source:
$ git clone https://github.com/saippuakauppias/django-custom_delete_selected.git $ cd django-custom_delete_selected $ python setup.py install
Import custom_delete_selected.admin.CustomDeleteSelected to extend ModelAdmin class and override delete_model method. For example:
from django.contrib import admin from custom_delete_selected.admin import CustomDeleteSelected class MyModelAdmin(CustomDeleteSelected, admin.ModelAdmin): # your code def delete_model(self, request, obj): # pre delete operations super(MyModelAdmin, self).delete_model(request, obj) # post delete operations
This code allow extends you deleting one object (when delete from change_form) and same objects (when delete from change_list).
