Backward incompatibility

Because of an issue#24, django-inspectional-registration add the following three new options.

  • REGISTRATION_DJANGO_AUTH_URLS_ENABLE If it is False, django-inspectional-registration do not define the views of django.contrib.auth. It is required to define these view manually. (Default: True)
  • REGISTRATION_DJANGO_AUTH_URL_NAMES_PREFIX It is used as a prefix string of view names of django.contrib.auth. For backward compatibility, set this value to 'auth_'. (Default: '')
  • REGISTRATION_DJANGO_AUTH_URL_NAMES_SUFFIX It is used as a suffix string of view names of django.contrib.auth. For backward compatibility, set this value to ''. (Default: '')

This changes were introduced from version 0.4.0, to keep the backward compatibility, write the following in your settings module.
