How a loggedin user can view other user profile using django

I am working on a django project. When a user logs in, the user will be redirected to the profile page where he can view his username, email, profile picture, and list of blogpost created by him.

This is the user profile page - blog/researcher-profile.html

{% extends 'users/base.html' %}
{% block content %}
<div class="content-section">
    <div class="media">
      <img class="rounded-circle account-img" src="{{ user.profile_pic.url }}" width="125" height="125">
      <div class="media-body">
        <h2 class="account-heading" style="margin-left: 30px">{{ user.username }}</h2>
        <p class="text-secondary" style="margin-left: 30px">{{ }}</p>
        <a href="{% url 'user-update' %}" class="btn btn-secondary btn-sm" style="margin-left: 30px;"> Edit Profile </a>
{% for post in posts %}
{% if post.approved %}
    <div class="card mb-3">
        <img class="card-img-top" src="{{ post.image.url }}" alt="Card image cap">
        <div class="card-body">
            <h5 class="card-title">{{ post.title|truncatechars:70 }}</h5>
            <p class="card-text">{{ post.content|truncatechars:200|safe }}</p>
            <a href="{% url 'post-detail' post.aid %}" class="btn btn-primary"> See Details </a>
        <div class="card-footer text-secondary">
            <a class="mr-2" href="{% url 'researcher-profile' %}">{{ }}</a>|| 
            {{ post.created|date:"F d, Y" }}
{% endif %}
{% endfor %}
{% endblock content %}

Now, I want to view other user profile. How to do that? As I am using class based views, So can anyone provide solution of this problem please?

Please be more specific and provide more detail with what you want to accomplish here. This includes describing how you want whatever this is to work from a user’s perspective.

For example, are you wanting to let a user look at other people’s profiles? If so, then you need to decide how you want a user to select the other user to display.

Yes. I want a user to look at other people’s profiles. In researcher-profile.html, In the footer of a post, when the logged-in user clicks on the author name, he is redirected to this same profile page which is fine if he is the author of the post.

But when a logged-in user goes to post number 3 which is the post_detail page, for example, localhost:8000/post/3/ and is not the author of this post and clicks on the username in the footer, then he is redirected to his own profile page instead of going to the author profile’s page.

Here is the post_detail.html

{% extends 'users/base.html' %}
{% block content %}
    <div class="card mb-3">
        <img class="card-img-top" src="{{ object.image.url }}" alt="Card image cap">
        <div class="card-body">
            <h5 class="card-title">{{ object.title }}</h5>
            <p class="card-text">{{ object.content|safe }}</p>
            <p class="card-text"> <b> Specialization: </b> {{ object.cid }} </p>
            {% if == user %}
                <a class="btn btn-secondary btn-sm mt-1 mb-1" href="{% url 'post-update' object.aid %}">Edit</a>
                <a class="btn btn-danger btn-sm mt-1 mb-1" href="{% url 'post-delete' object.aid %}">Delete</a>
            {% endif %}
        <div class="card-footer text-secondary">
            <a class="mr-2" href="{% url 'researcher-profile' %}">{{ }}</a>|| 
            {{ object.created|date:"F d, Y" }}
{% endblock content %}

class UserPostDetailView(LoginRequiredMixin, DetailView):
    model = Post

 path('post/<int:pk>/', UserPostDetailView.as_view(), name='post-detail'),

How to solve this problem?

I don’t see in any of the template fragments posted here where you’re creating a link to 'post-detail'. Where are you using it?
