Django compatibility

On GitHub there is specific branch of Django WP Admin for each major Django version and master branch is always for current stable Django. Releases on PyPI have numbering matching proper Django versions, so for instance for Django 1.7.x you should install Django WP Admin 1.7.y (pip install “django-wpadmin>=1.7,<1.8”). Branches of Django WP Admin for Django older than current stable usually will not have new features added, only bugs will be fixed. Only version for current stable Django will have new features, but any pull requests for older branches are welcome.



Try test_project here or download django-wpadmin from GitHub and run it on your own machine. test_project contains SQLite database file with prepopulated sample data.


  • Install django-wpadmin from PyPI:

    pip install django-wpadmin
  • Or from GitHub:

    pip install git+

Basic configuration


Basic configuration above will only change look of Django’s admin page, but there’s much more you can do with Django WP Admin. Check out documentation on Read the Docs for details (there is also changelog there).


Many translations are already available thanks to good people that helped. If you want to help to translate this software, please join me on Transifex:


Please create an issue on GitHub if you have any problems or requests.


Python code is based on django-admin-tools app.

WordPress look and feel is of course inspired by WordPress.

Included icons comes from Font Awesome.
