CSS Question

The way to use background-image in css files with Django

I'd like to use an image file as a background-image on

Django
. But I do not know how.
First, I read this and tried to write like following this in a css file.

#third{
background: url("img/sample.jpeg") 50% 0 no-repeat fixed;
color: white;
height: 650px;
padding: 100px 0 0 0;
}


But this does not work.

{% load staticfiles %}
#third{
background: url({% static "img/sample.jpeg" %}) 50% 0 no-repeat fixed;
}


and

#third{
background: url("../img/sample.jpeg") 50% 0 no-repeat fixed;
}


don't work, too.

How do you usually write css file when you use background-image on css files? Would you please give me some advices?

C:\~~~~~~> dir hello\static\img
2016/09/28 19:56 2,123 logo.png
2016/09/24 14:53 104,825 sample.jpeg


C:\~~~~~~> dir hello\static\css
2016/09/29 20:27 1,577 site.css


C:\~~~~~~> more lemon\settings.py
BASE_DIR = os.path.dirname(os.path.dirname(__file__))
PROJECT_ROOT = os.path.dirname(os.path.abspath(__file__))
STATIC_ROOT = os.path.join(PROJECT_ROOT, 'staticfiles')
STATIC_URL = '/static/'
STATICFILES_DIRS = (
os.path.join(PROJECT_ROOT, 'static'),
)


C:\~~~~~~> more hello\templates\base.html
{% load staticfiles %}
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{% static "css/site.css" %}" />


Django version: 1.9.2

Answer

Use this:

    #third{
     background: url("/static/img/sample.jpeg") 50% 0 no-repeat fixed;
     color: white;
     height: 650px;
     padding: 100px 0 0 0;   
     }

Most probably This will work.Use "/static/" before your image URL and then try them. Thanks
