Django admin page is missing CSS
I am actually following a youtube tutorial for learning Django and admin site is not showing properly. The admin tab in the video looks like this:
My admin tab however looks like this:
An answer in stack overflow suggested to put DEBUG = True in settings.py file. But it is already set to that in my case.
It would be better to start a simple project using the instructions provided in this documentation Django - Introduction tutorial
Initially, you can also try the following instructions to check it.
At first, install django (latest version) using the following command
python -m pip install django
Then, open a folder in which you would like to create a django project, and open the terminal in that folder, then paste the following code
django-admin startproject MyProject
Copy and paste the following two commands one-by-one,
py manage.py makemigrations py manage.py migrate
After that, create a admin user by providing the e-mail, username and password through the following command as follows,
py manage.py createsuperuser
Now, copy and paste the link you get in the browser along with 'admin/', which will direct you to the admin login page as specified in the documentation
You've probably set
static files' location the wrong way. Sending
settings.py is needed for any further help.
You can check this document for default values.
