def index(request): the_user = request.user
In Django, how do I know if it's a real user or not? I tried:
if the_user: but "AnonymousUser" is there even if no one logs in. So, it always returns true and this doesn't work.
An Alternative to
if user.is_anonymous(): # user is anon user
is by testing to see what the id of the user object is:
if user.id == None: # user is anon user else: # user is a real user
