Tutorial Part 6: Lacking import static for static files

In the tutorial in step 6 ( the following code is used:

{% load staticfiles %}

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{% static 'polls/style.css' %}" />

It wouldn't work when I tried. I figured out that I have to import

from django.conf.urls.static import static

to get it work properly.

What error do you get? Where do you add the import? Perhaps you've made some mistake as the tutorial works fine for me.

I don't get a direct error. But the stylesheet style.css is not loaded as it's url is missing a "static/" at the start. With the import of

from django.conf.urls.static import static

the "static/" appears.
