Beginner question on admin interface


Hi guys,
I hope this has not been asked yet, it's a total beginner question.

After finally getting Django and PyDev set up on my windows machine, I
am now going through the tutorial.

I am planning a kind of black board, where users can post entries
including things such as images.

Now my question is: Does it make sense to use the standard Django
admin here, or is it better to write your own admin?

Things I need are
- Self-Registration with e-mail validation
- Approval process (meaning if a user wants to post sth., I want to
approve it before it gets published)
- Neat Ajax Interface - e.g. the user should be able to upload as many
pictures as he want to, and when he does so each picture should be
showed as thumbnail right in the edit page. In the tutorial this would
mean that the user can not only add 3 choises to a poll, but an
unlimited number of choices.
- Does the admin interface some kind of tagging input? E.g. in some
blog software you can enter a word and it will offer similar tags
while typing.


Okay, honestly I believe it will be easier to go from scratch. However
I'd still like to ask, since the idea of having an almost-done admin
interface is very neat.



Kind Regards
Stephan

Beginner question on admin interface


Hi Stephan,

Sounds like a nice project, but unless you have a good deal of time
and a great amount of expiernce in programming + a entire development
team to back you up I would have to say that scripting your own
content management system from scratch may be slighty beyond you. If
of course that is what you meant.

If however you meant you were looking for some existing applications
for Django then you may want to look into these:

Self-Registration. Look into Django-registrationhttp://bitbucket.org/ubernostrum/django-registration/Tagging:http://code.google.com/p/django-tagging/Django-Cms:http://www.django-cms.org/(although I have come across
some compatibilty issues using Django-cms and django-tagging together,
with regards to the Django version)

Good luck

Rob

As the other reply indicates, that is a very tall order for a beginner. The
admin interface is functional for editing, but not necessarily the
prettiest. The beauty of the admin interface lies in the heavy lifting it
does for you, and the fact that it is easily extendable--you can override
any of its templates to provide extra functionality and/or your own look and
feel, without having to re-invent the wheel.

I would advise to use it and learn to tweak it. Once you finish and look
back, I think you will find you are glad you did.
