- url ssl reverse permalink
- 1 (after 1 ratings)
This snippet monkey-patches Django's reverse() method (use for generating URLs from vew functions and parameters) to allow certain areas of your site to automatically have URLs with the correct SSL domain in place.
This saves you from having to use unnecessary redirects to guide users to an SSL-encrypted version of a page. This should still be used alongside a redirect-based method (such as this snippet) to ensure that the user can't access an unencrypted version of the page
Simply add the code to the files mentioned in the code.
This obviously won't work anywhere that doesn't use reverse(), the admin app seems to be an example of this.
