I started making another project with django and again i had a hard time remembering how configure static media serving.
Here are the important steps to make it work.

</p>

  1. Get a webserver running and make it serve your static files, lets say under http://localhost/project_media

  2. Open s_ettings.py_ of your project and insert the following lines:
    TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS = (
    „django.core.context_processors.auth“,
    „django.core.context_processors.debug“,
    „django.core.context_processors.i18n“,
    „django.core.context_processors.media“,
    )

  3. Edit the line: MEDIA_URL = and point it to http://localhost/project_media

  4. Edit the view where you want to make use of the static files and use the following code:
    from django.shortcuts import render_to_response
    from django.template import RequestContext
    def index(request):
    return render_to_response(‚page.html‘, {},
    RequestContext(request))

  5. No open the page.hmtl and access the media url with the template tag: __

</ol>

Thats it. Not much to it, but the documentation lacks a place where all that information is tied
together, or i was just to blind to see it.
