fix STATIC_URL is empty in Django

When using static files in my Django application, the STATIC_URL is empty even I set it in the, after a few research, here is how I fixed it.

My static image files are located at movie/static/img (my application is movie)

1. in

from django.template import RequestContext

if you use render_to_response, make sure you add context_instance=RequestContext(request) in it,

render_to_response('movie/index.html', {'movie_list': movie_list}, context_instance=RequestContext(request));

2. in, make sure there are following lines:

STATIC_URL = '/static/'


3. in template, the usage is:

<img src="{{ STATIC_URL }}img/{{ movie.image }}" />
