Django: How to remove fields from a Form Posted on

Let’s say you want to inherit from the following form:

class SuperLongForm(forms.Form):
    first_name = ...
    last_name = ...

And that you want to recreate the same form, but without the last_name field. All you have to do is to remove the field from the fields dict:

class FirstNameOnlyForm(SuperLongForm):
    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
    super(FirstNameOnlyForm, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)

Keep in mind that this is not the smartest way to do thing. Two forms inheriting from a base form with the first_name field would be a much smarter decision.
