Add this to your model to be able to get their admin change link from anywhere

Useful if you want to jump to the admin screen of an object you are looking at on the front end

from django.core import urlresolvers
from django.contrib.contenttypes.models import ContentType

def get_admin_url(self):
    content_type = ContentType.objects.get_for_model(self.__class__)
    return urlresolvers.reverse("admin:%s_%s_change" % (content_type.app_label, content_type.model), args=(self.id,))

Nice. Minor tweak, args=(self.pk,) instead, to support models with explicit primary_key.

You can do it without using a query to ContentTypes!

def get_admin_url(self):
    return urlresolvers.reverse("admin:%s_%s_change" %
        (self._meta.app_label, self._meta.module_name), args=(self.id,))

@twoolie Your solution doesn't work for me, only the original solution works. Because in my model, self._meta.module_name doesn't exist.

self._meta.module_name should be self._meta.model_name.
