Sometimes when you start a new Django project , you may find that your static files are not working . If you are getting this problem then it means you have to set up this line STATICFILES_DIRS = [ ] in your settings.py file correctly. it should be pointing to the path where your static files which are independent of any app are found

    os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'static')

static files which are inside an app are automatically found by Django , for example lets say your app name is blog , your static files will be located in /blog/static/blog/ , these will be found automatically by Django.
