I know this is a common question but I've followed the tutorial and some of the other forum posts and I'm still stumped :( I'm having trouble serving static files with my Django web app.
I have the following in settings.py:
import os BASE_DIR = os.path.dirname(os.path.dirname(__file__)) STATIC_URL = '/static/' STATIC_ROOT = os.path.join(BASE_DIR, "static") MEDIA_URL = '/media/' MEDIA_ROOT = os.path.join(BASE_DIR, "media")
Under the "web" tab, I've specified the following static file directories:
- /static/ : home/tsaltas/FuseProject-Prototype/prototype/static/
- /media/ : home/tsaltas/FuseProject-Prototype/prototype/media/
When I load the app in the browser and inspect the source code, the link URLs appear correct:
- img src="/media/project_images/winterize1.jpg"
I've fiddled with appending/prepending slashes, hard-coding the STATIC_ROOT and MEDIA_ROOT, etc. and I can't seem to figure it out. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions!
Many thanks in advance,
