#6335 closed (wontfix)

The static file serving documentation misses to add a windows specific information.

The documentation at mentions the steps to serve static files using Django, which basically is to add this line to,
(r'site_media/(?P<path>.*)$', 'django.views.static.serve', {'document_root': '/path/to/media'}),
On windows this might be something like (r'
site_media/(?P<path>.*)$', 'django.views.static.serve', {'document_root': 'F:/djangoprojects/wiki/templates/site_media'}),
Now here we needed to use forward slashes on Windows as well. This should be pointed out in the documentation.

You don't have to use forward slashes. Backslashes (properly escaped) work fine too. I'll call it and say this addition isn't necessary.
