Django compatibility

On GitHub there is specific branch of Django WP Admin for each major Django version and master branch is always for current stable Django. Releases on PyPI have numbering matching proper Django versions, so for instance for Django 1.7.x you should install Django WP Admin 1.7.y (pip install "django-wpadmin>=1.7,<1.8"). Branches of Django WP Admin for Django older than current stable usually will not have new features added, only bugs will be fixed. Only version for current stable Django will have new features, but any pull requests for older branches are welcome.


  • Add support (in 3.0.x branch) for Django 3.0
  • Host test project on PythonAnywhere or Heroku
  • Add support (in 2.2.x branch) for Django 2.2
  • Add support (in 1.11.x branch) for Django 1.11
  • Add support (in 1.9.x branch) for Django 1.9
  • Make sure everything works fine with GeoDjango
  • Do not rely on Django admin styles, move everything to Django WP Admin styles.
  • Better documentation
  • django-filebrowser or django-filer support
  • django-mptt support
  • Optional templates for django-rosetta
