I've been trying to make the PermissionRequiredMixin to redirect the user to a specific page if they don't have permission to view that page.

I struggled a lot making it redirect as I wanted it to because it kept redirecting to the login page (default), but now I finally made it redirect as I want it to.

Now I'm wondering if this is an okay way to do it, or if I should do it differently?

class NewsCreateView(LoginRequiredMixin, PermissionRequiredMixin, generic.CreateView):
    permission_required = 'news.can_add'
    fields = ('title', 'content', 'public', 'author')
    model = News

    def handle_no_permission(self):
        return HttpResponseRedirect(reverse('news:news'))
