I’ve run into this once or twice.  I’m pretty sure it means the “collectstatic” task hasn’t been run.  On the server, it’s something like this:


                cd /opt/chronam

source ENV/bin/activate

export DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE=chronam.settings

django-admin.py collectstatic --noinput


I hope outlook didn’t autoformat that too crazily :-/

Has anyone ever run into this situation?


New Chronam installation. Test batch loaded. Access the site successfully but


A) it appears it isn't applying/can't find the style sheets

B) full page image does not appear (thumbnails do)


Thanks in advance.
