[Fixed]-How to add report section to the Django admin?


So you are attempting to add in new pages into the django admin.

This section explains to you exactly how you can do so – https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/contrib/admin/#adding-views-to-admin-sites

The basic idea is to add in new urls that you want in your urls.py as if you are adding urls for your “front end” pages. The key difference is that these new urls you are adding should start with ^admin/ and would look something like ^admin/my_special_link_in_admin and this url will point to your own custom view function at a location you so prefer.


(r'^admin/my_special_link_in_admin/$', 'my_custom_admin_app.views.special_admin_page'),

So this is the way for complete customization. There’s a very good tutorial which I refer to here – http://brandonkonkle.com/blog/2010/oct/4/django-admin-customization-examples/

In addition, if you don’t want to do too much work, consider using Django Admin Plus – https://github.com/jsocol/django-adminplus

Or a django-admin-views – https://github.com/frankwiles/django-admin-views
