The built-in comment models

class Comment

Django’s built-in comment model. Has the following fields:

content_object

A GenericForeignKey attribute pointing to the object the comment is attached to. You can use this to get at the related object (i.e. my_comment.content_object).

Since this field is a GenericForeignKey, it’s actually syntactic sugar on top of two underlying attributes, described below.

content_type

A ForeignKey to ContentType; this is the type of the object the comment is attached to.

object_pk

A TextField containing the primary key of the object the comment is attached to.

site

A ForeignKey to the Site on which the comment was posted.

user

A ForeignKey to the User who posted the comment. May be blank if the comment was posted by an unauthenticated user.

user_name

The name of the user who posted the comment.

user_email

The email of the user who posted the comment.

user_url

The URL entered by the person who posted the comment.

comment

The actual content of the comment itself.

submit_date

The date the comment was submitted.

ip_address

The IP address of the user posting the comment.

is_public

False if the comment is in moderation (see Generic comment moderation); If True, the comment will be displayed on the site.

is_removed

True if the comment was removed. Used to keep track of removed comments instead of just deleting them.
