How can I prevent people accessing templates directly that are only used as includes for instance?

I read that I could add an underscore ie _example.html,but then the include stops working.


If your template is _example.html, you include like this:

{% include '_example.html' %}

It also works to have a template in a directory that starts with an underscore. So you could name the directory _includes, name the template in there example.html and include it like this:

{% include '_includes/example.html' %}

Either way, the template can't be accessed directly.

  • Ah, I missed the point (facepalm) Since you also need to adjust the include I thought you could still access the template with the underscore added. But then it's blocked
