You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I am trying to save username as firstname while adding a user from django admin. Currently it saves None in the username field as I have excluded username in the custom model.

from django.contrib import admin
from django.contrib.auth.admin import UserAdmin
from django.contrib.auth.models import User
from .models import UserProfile
from .forms import SignUpForm

class ProfileInline(admin.StackedInline):
    model = UserProfile
    can_delete = False
    verbose_name_plural = 'Profile'
    fk_name = 'user'

class CustomUserAdmin(UserAdmin):
    inlines = (ProfileInline, )
    list_display = ('email', 'first_name', 'last_name', 'is_staff')
    list_select_related = ( 'profile', )

    exclude = ('username',)

    fieldsets = (
        ('Personal information', {'fields': ('first_name', 'last_name', 'email', 'password')}),
        ('Permissions', {'fields': ('is_active', 'is_staff', 'is_superuser', 'groups', 'user_permissions')}),
        ('Important dates', {'fields': ('last_login', 'date_joined')}),

    add_fieldsets = (
        ('None', {
            'classes': ('wide',),
            'fields': ('first_name','last_name', 'email', 'password1', 'password2')}

    def get_inline_instances(self, request, obj=None):
        if not obj:
            return list()
        return super(CustomUserAdmin, self).get_inline_instances(request, obj), CustomUserAdmin)
How can I insert username as firstname and make the custom field ie email 'required'. Now the password1 & password2 fields are mandatory.

Any help is highly appreciated.
