Global settings editor for Wagtail using django-solo

Project description

Global settings editor for Wagtail using django-solo

wagtail-global-settings provides a global singleton model editing interface and frontend access for Wagtail. It uses django-solo for the model.


  1. Install wagtail-global-settings.
  2. Add wagtail_global_settings to INSTALLED_APPS in your It should be after any apps that use the global_settings_tags template tags.


To use wagtail-global-settings you need to define a model, which inherits from AbstractGlobalSettingsCollection:

class GlobalSettings(AbstractGlobalSettingsCollection):
    facebook_app_id = models.CharField(max_length=256)
    google_app_id = models.CharField(max_length=256)
    analytics_id = models.CharField(max_length=256)

    panels = [

    class Meta:
        verbose_name = "Global settings"

For the frontend you have three options:

  • use the context processor:

Add 'wagtail_global_settings.context_processors.global_settings' to your TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS and then use the settings in your template: {{ global_settings.home.GlobalSettings.facebook_app_id }}

  • use the template tags:

Add {% load global_settings_tags %} at the beginning of your template and then use the tags in your template: {% global_settings 'home' 'GlobalSettings' 'facebook_app_id' %} or {% get_global_settings 'home' 'GlobalSettings' 'facebook_app_id' as facebook_app_id %} {{ facebook_app_id }}. It’s possible to skip the field name, in which case you’ll get the singleton model instance: {% get_global_settings 'home' 'GlobalSettings' as global_settings %} {{ global_settings.facebook_app_id }}

  • use the template tags provided by django-solo:

Add {% load solo_tags %} at the beginning of your template and then use the tag in your template: {% get_solo 'home.GlobalSettings' as global_settings %} {{ global_settings.facebook_app_id }}

For more information about configuration and caching see django-solo.
