+Limiting access to generic views
+--------------------------------
+
+To limit access to a `generic view`_, write a thin wrapper around the view,
+and point your URLconf to your wrapper instead of the generic view itself.
+For example::
+
+ from django.views.generic.date_based import object_detail
+
+ @login_required
+ def limited_object_detail(*args, **kwargs):
+ return object_detail(*args, **kwargs)
+
+.. _generic view: http://www.djangoproject.com/documentation/generic_views/
