Oscar settings

This is a comprehensive list of all the settings Oscar provides. All settings are optional.

Display settings

Default: 'Oscar'

The name of your e-commerce shop site. This is shown as the main logo within the default templates.

Default: ''

The tagline that is displayed next to the shop name and in the browser title.

OSCAR_HOMEPAGE

Default: reverse_lazy('promotions:home')

OSCAR_ACCOUNTS_REDIRECT_URL

Default: 'customer:profile-view'

Oscar has a view that gets called any time the user clicks on ‘My account’ or similar. By default it’s a dumb redirect to the view configured with this setting. But you could also override the view to display a more useful account summary page or such like.

OSCAR_RECENTLY_VIEWED_PRODUCTS

Default: 20

The number of recently viewed products to store.

OSCAR_HIDDEN_FEATURES

Defaults: []

Allows to disable particular Oscar feature in application and templates. More information in the How to disable an app or feature document.

OSCAR_SEARCH_FACETS

A dictionary that specifies the facets to use with the search backend. It needs to be a dict with keys fields and queries for field- and query-type facets. Field-type facets can get an ‘options’ element with parameters like facet sorting, filtering, etc. The default is:

OSCAR_SEARCH_FACETS = {
    'fields': OrderedDict([
        ('product_class', {'name': _('Type'), 'field': 'product_class'}),
        ('rating', {'name': _('Rating'), 'field': 'rating'}),
    ]),
    'queries': OrderedDict([
        ('price_range',
         {
             'name': _('Price range'),
             'field': 'price',
             'queries': [
                 # This is a list of (name, query) tuples where the name will
                 # be displayed on the front-end.
                 (_('0 to 20'), u'[0 TO 20]'),
                 (_('20 to 40'), u'[20 TO 40]'),
                 (_('40 to 60'), u'[40 TO 60]'),
                 (_('60+'), u'[60 TO *]'),
             ]
         }),
    ]),
}

OSCAR_PRODUCT_SEARCH_HANDLER

The search handler to be used in the product list views. If None, Oscar tries to guess the correct handler based on your Haystack settings.

Default:

None

OSCAR_PROMOTION_POSITIONS

Default:

OSCAR_PROMOTION_POSITIONS = (('page', 'Page'),
                             ('right', 'Right-hand sidebar'),
                             ('left', 'Left-hand sidebar'))

The choice of display locations available when editing a promotion. Only useful when using a new set of templates.

OSCAR_PROMOTION_MERCHANDISING_BLOCK_TYPES

Default:

COUNTDOWN, LIST, SINGLE_PRODUCT, TABBED_BLOCK = (
    'Countdown', 'List', 'SingleProduct', 'TabbedBlock')
OSCAR_PROMOTION_MERCHANDISING_BLOCK_TYPES = (
    (COUNTDOWN, "Vertical list"),
    (LIST, "Horizontal list"),
    (TABBED_BLOCK, "Tabbed block"),
    (SINGLE_PRODUCT, "Single product"),
)

Defines the available promotion block types that can be used in Oscar.

OSCAR_DASHBOARD_NAVIGATION

Default: see oscar.defaults (too long to include here).

A list of dashboard navigation elements. Usage is explained in How to configure the dashboard navigation.

OSCAR_DASHBOARD_DEFAULT_ACCESS_FUNCTION

Default: 'oscar.apps.dashboard.nav.default_access_fn'

OSCAR_DASHBOARD_NAVIGATION allows passing an access function for each node which is used to determine whether to show the node for a specific user or not. If no access function is defined, the function specified here is used. The default function integrates with the permission-based dashboard and shows the node if the user will be able to access it. That should be sufficient for most cases.

Order settings

OSCAR_INITIAL_ORDER_STATUS

The initial status used when a new order is submitted. This has to be a status that is defined in the OSCAR_ORDER_STATUS_PIPELINE.

OSCAR_INITIAL_LINE_STATUS

The status assigned to a line item when it is created as part of an new order. It has to be a status defined in OSCAR_ORDER_STATUS_PIPELINE.

OSCAR_ORDER_STATUS_PIPELINE

Default: {}

The pipeline defines the statuses that an order or line item can have and what transitions are allowed in any given status. The pipeline is defined as a dictionary where the keys are the available statuses. Allowed transitions are defined as iterable values for the corresponding status.

A sample pipeline (as used in the Oscar sandbox) might look like this:

OSCAR_INITIAL_ORDER_STATUS = 'Pending'
OSCAR_INITIAL_LINE_STATUS = 'Pending'
OSCAR_ORDER_STATUS_PIPELINE = {
    'Pending': ('Being processed', 'Cancelled',),
    'Being processed': ('Processed', 'Cancelled',),
    'Cancelled': (),
}

OSCAR_ORDER_STATUS_CASCADE

This defines a mapping of status changes for order lines which ‘cascade’ down from an order status change.

For example:

OSCAR_ORDER_STATUS_CASCADE = {
    'Being processed': 'In progress'
}

With this mapping, when an order has it’s status set to ‘Being processed’, all lines within it have their status set to ‘In progress’. In a sense, the status change cascades down to the related objects.

Note that this cascade ignores restrictions from the OSCAR_LINE_STATUS_PIPELINE.

OSCAR_LINE_STATUS_PIPELINE

Default: {}

Same as OSCAR_ORDER_STATUS_PIPELINE but for lines.

Checkout settings

OSCAR_ALLOW_ANON_CHECKOUT

Default: False

Specifies if an anonymous user can buy products without creating an account first. If set to False users are required to authenticate before they can checkout (using Oscar’s default checkout views).

OSCAR_REQUIRED_ADDRESS_FIELDS

Default: ('first_name', 'last_name', 'line1', 'line4', 'postcode', 'country')

List of form fields that a user has to fill out to validate an address field.

Review settings

OSCAR_ALLOW_ANON_REVIEWS

Default: True

This setting defines whether an anonymous user can create a review for a product without registering first. If it is set to True anonymous users can create product reviews.

OSCAR_MODERATE_REVIEWS

Default: False

This defines whether reviews have to be moderated before they are publicly available. If set to False a review created by a customer is immediately visible on the product page.

Communication settings

OSCAR_EAGER_ALERTS

Default: True

This enables sending alert notifications/emails instantly when products get back in stock by listening to stock record update signals this might impact performance for large numbers stock record updates. Alternatively, the management command oscar_send_alerts can be used to run periodically, e.g. as a cronjob. In this case instant alerts should be disabled.

OSCAR_SEND_REGISTRATION_EMAIL

Default: True

Sending out welcome messages to a user after they have registered on the site can be enabled or disabled using this setting. Setting it to True will send out emails on registration.

OSCAR_FROM_EMAIL

Default: oscar@example.com

The email address used as the sender for all communication events and emails handled by Oscar.

OSCAR_STATIC_BASE_URL

Default: None

A URL which is passed into the templates for communication events. It is not used in Oscar’s default templates but could be used to include static assets (eg images) in a HTML email template.

Offer settings

OSCAR_OFFER_ROUNDING_FUNCTION

Default: Round down to the nearest hundredth of a unit using decimal.Decimal.quantize

A function responsible for rounding decimal amounts when offer discount calculations don’t lead to legitimate currency values.

Basket settings

OSCAR_MAX_BASKET_QUANTITY_THRESHOLD

Default: None

The maximum number of products that can be added to a basket at once.

Currency settings

OSCAR_DEFAULT_CURRENCY

Default: GBP

This should be the symbol of the currency you wish Oscar to use by default. This will be used by the currency templatetag.

OSCAR_CURRENCY_FORMAT

Default: None

Dictionary with arguments for the format_currency function from the Babel library. Contains next options: format, format_type, currency_digits. For example:

OSCAR_CURRENCY_FORMAT = {
    'USD': {
        'currency_digits': False,
        'currency_digits': "accounting",
    },
    'EUR': { .. }
}

Upload/media settings

OSCAR_IMAGE_FOLDER

Default: images/products/%Y/%m/

The location within the MEDIA_ROOT folder that is used to store product images. The folder name can contain date format strings as described in the Django Docs.

OSCAR_DELETE_IMAGE_FILES

Default: True

If enabled, a post_delete hook will attempt to delete any image files and created thumbnails when a model with an ImageField is deleted. This is usually desired, but might not be what you want when using a remote storage.

OSCAR_PROMOTION_FOLDER

Default: images/promotions/

The folder within MEDIA_ROOT used for uploaded promotion images.

OSCAR_MISSING_IMAGE_URL

Default: image_not_found.jpg

Copy this image from oscar/static/img to your MEDIA_ROOT folder. It needs to be there so Sorl can resize it.

OSCAR_UPLOAD_ROOT

Default: /tmp

The folder is used to temporarily hold uploaded files until they are processed. Such files should always be deleted afterwards.

Slug settings

OSCAR_SLUG_MAP

Default: {}

A dictionary to map strings to more readable versions for including in URL slugs. This mapping is appled before the slugify function. This is useful when names contain characters which would normally be stripped. For instance:

OSCAR_SLUG_MAP = {
    'c++': 'cpp',
    'f#': 'fsharp',
}

OSCAR_SLUG_FUNCTION

Default: 'oscar.core.utils.default_slugifier'

The slugify function to use. Note that is used within Oscar’s slugify wrapper (in oscar.core.utils) which applies the custom map and blacklist. String notation is recommended, but specifying a callable is supported for backwards-compatibility.

Example:

# in myproject.utils
def some_slugify(value):
    return value

# in settings.py
OSCAR_SLUG_FUNCTION = 'myproject.utils.some_slugify'

OSCAR_SLUG_BLACKLIST

Default: []

A list of words to exclude from slugs.

Example:

OSCAR_SLUG_BLACKLIST = ['the', 'a', 'but']

OSCAR_SLUG_ALLOW_UNICODE

Allows to disable unicode to ASCII conversion and enable allow_unicode option for AutoSlugField, which is supported by SlugField in Django>=1.9 (https://docs.djangoproject.com/es/1.9/ref/models/fields/#django.db.models.SlugField.allow_unicode). This will allow to have automatically generated unicode-containing slugs.

Misc settings

OSCAR_COOKIES_DELETE_ON_LOGOUT

Default: ['oscar_recently_viewed_products',]

Which cookies to delete automatically when the user logs out.

OSCAR_GOOGLE_ANALYTICS_ID
