How do I use the built in password reset/change views with my own templates?

0 votes
I can point the url '^/accounts/password/reset/$' to django.contrib.auth.views.password_reset with my template filename in the context but I think need to send more context details.

I need to know exactly what context to add for each of the password reset and change views.

Hello @kartik,

You'll notice that password_reset takes a named parameter called template_name:

def password_reset(request, is_admin_site=False, 
            template_name='registration/password_reset_form.html',
            email_template_name='registration/password_reset_email.html',
            password_reset_form=PasswordResetForm, 
            token_generator=default_token_generator,
            post_reset_redirect=None):

thus, with a urls.py like:

from django.conf.urls.defaults import *
from django.contrib.auth.views import password_reset

urlpatterns = patterns('',
     (r'^/accounts/password/reset/$', password_reset, {'template_name': 'my_templates/password_reset.html'}),
     ...
)

django.contrib.auth.views.password_reset will be called for URLs matching '/accounts/password/reset' with the keyword argument template_name = 'my_templates/password_reset.html'.

Hope it helps!!
Thank you!!
