Django Admin Window
To put the Posts model we created under the control of Django admin; so that in order to create, edit and delete posts, open the blog1/admin.py file in any code editor. In that, remove everything and add:
from django.contrib import admin from .models import Post admin.site.register(Post)
To make our Posts visible on admin page, we have imported (include) the Posts in admin.py file.
Now, run the website on your machine using:
python manage.py runserver
And then go to the address http://127.0.0.1:8000/admin/
Creating a SuperUser – Django
To log in, we need to create a superuser. For that run, the following command in a separate Terminal/console:
python manage.py createsuperuser
After then enter email address, username and password, when asked
Username: aayush Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org Password: Password (again): Superuser created successfully.
Then, in the admin window enter the following details to Log in. Then you will be redirected to the Admin dashboard.
