[Fixed]-Querying Many to many fields in django template


In general, you can follow anything that’s an attribute or a method call with no arguments through pathing in the django template system.

For the view code above, something like

{% for objs in obj_arr %}
{% for answer in objs.answers.all %}
  {{ answer.someattribute }}
{% endfor %}
{% endfor %}

should do what you’re expecting.

(I couldn’t quite make out the specifics from your code sample, but hopefully this will illuminate what you can get into through the templates)



It’s also possible to register a filter like this:


class Profile(models.Model):
    options=models.ManyToManyField('Option', editable=False)


def does_profile_have_option(profile, option_id):
    """Returns non zero value if a profile has the option.

        {% if user.profile|does_profile_have_option:option.id %}
        {% endif %}
    return profile.options.filter(id=option_id).count()
