Adding the fields to the Admin

By default, Django Categories adds the fields you configure to the model’s Admin class. If your ModelAdmin class does not use the fieldsets attribute, the configured category fields are simply appended to the bottom the fields. If your ModelAdmin uses the fieldsets attribute, a new fieldset named Categories, containing all the configured fields is appended to the fieldsets. You can override or alter this behavior with the ADMIN_FIELDSETS setting.

ADMIN_FIELDSETS allows you to:

  • Prevent Django Categories from adding the fields or fieldsets to a model’s ModelAdmin class.
  • Change the name of the fieldset (from the default: “Categories”)
  • Change the placement of the fieldset (from the default: bottom)

Preventing fields in the admin class

If you don’t want Django Categories to add any fields to the admin class, simply use the following format:

CATEGORIES_SETTINGS = {
    'ADMIN_FIELDSETS': [
        'app.model': None,
    ]
}

Changing the name of the field set

To rename the field set, use the following format:

CATEGORIES_SETTINGS = {
    'ADMIN_FIELDSETS': [
        'app.model': 'Taxonomy',
    ]
}

Putting the field set exactly where you want it

For complete control over the field set, use the following format:

CATEGORIES_SETTINGS = {
    'ADMIN_FIELDSETS': [
        'app.model': {
            'name': 'Categories',
            'index': 0
        },
    ]
}
