Django setting debug=False breaks href links

I am developing a website using Django framework. It works perfectly well using Django=True, however when I set Django=False, system could not find the other html files which are being accessed in <a href=... links. Let say, I am developing 'mysite', then the following code:

<li><a href="index-2.html"><i class="fab fa-dribbble"></i></a></li>

is present behind an icon on mysite. Then clicking the icon takes the user to '', however it throws "The requested resource was not found on this server" error.

And this happens only when we set Django=False and in production. No link on the homepage is working due to this.

try using onclick function instead of href and In static files you have add some configration to serve the static files in django.

STATIC_ROOT = os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'staticfiles')
STATIC_URL = '/static/'
#STATIC_ROOT = os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'static/')
# add manual
    os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'static')
MEDIA_ROOT = os.path.join(BASE_DIR,'static/images/')
    messages.ERROR: 'danger'

if this is work please contact me , I found this from freelance app

To resolve this, I added specific functions for each of the .html files in file and added link of the function to main html file. For example: I added following to my file:

def about(request):
     return render(request,'about.html')

and used as follows in index.html:

href = '\about'

Doing this for all used html files resolved the issue for both debug=True and debug=False. Not sure if this is the best way but working for now.
