Django: could not parse the remainder (media i.e. image)


I am developing a WebApp using Django.I m a newbie, I have this html file which contains image, i did go through this “link”, but now i am getting an error as in parsing the Media Url. Could any let me know what is wrong? I have checked the permissions, even they are correct. !!

This is that image which i am including –

<img border="2" src="{{ MEDIA_URL }}samplelogo.jpg" alt="logo here"/>

This is the –

from django.conf.urls.defaults import patterns, include, url
import settings

from django.contrib import admin

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    url(r'^gharnivas/$', 'gharnivas.views.index'),
    url(r'^media/(?P<path>.*)$','django.views.static.serve',{'document_root': settings.MEDIA_ROOT}),

This is the with media url and root :

MEDIA_ROOT = '/home/nagaraj/ghar/templates/media'
MEDIA_URL = 'http://localhost:8000/media/'

ghar is the django project and gharnivas is the app

Update :

Now I have removed the error of TemplateSyntaxError by replacing Media url to ‘/media/’ as suggested by @Torsten below. But still not getting the image !!

Another query , is it correct that i am using MEDIA_ROOT And MEDIA_URL ? Because some place i even see that they have STATIC_URL and STATIC_ROOT !!


{{ MEDIA_URL }} outputs empty string? Make sure that


2). You pass RequestContext in your template (by passing context_instance=RequestContext(request) in render_to_response or by using direct_to_template instead).
