Django user profiles

While the Django doco is pretty good, it is a bit light-on for user profiles. User profiles are for when you want to extend the information stored per user on top of the Django defaults (firstname, lastname, email etc.). There is a good blog post that fills in the gaps, although be sure to read the comments, because there is a gotcha and a work around. Basically this is what you want:

from site.app.models import UserProfile
from django.contrib.auth.admin import UserAdmin as RealUserAdmin

class UserProfileInline(admin.StackedInline):
model = UserProfile

class UserAdmin(RealUserAdmin):
inlines = [ UserProfileInline ]
