Strangely during debug of admin CSS not loading I noticed that:

Gave a different error page to:


First said:
"f:/projects/store/static\css/base.css" does not exist

Second said:
Using the URLconf defined in urlconf, Django tried these URL patterns, in this order:
<43 numbered lines snipped>
The current URL, admin/css/base.css, didn't match any of these.

Different URLs might produce different errors, I don't think that's particularly surprising. If the URL does not match any of your URL patterns, you get the error about no URL pattern found. If the URL matches the STATIC_URL pattern but the static file does not exist, you get the "file does not exist" error. Both are leading to the 404 page, which is the important thing in a production context.

Please in the future, try to first find help in support channels ( before creating a ticket.
