      urlpatterns = patterns('',
          # ...

          # ...
      )
      
      if settings.DEBUG:
          urlpatterns += patterns('',
              (r'^media/(?P<path>.*)$', 'django.views.static.serve', {
              'document_root': settings.MEDIA_ROOT}))
      
    • For Django 1.8:

      # ...
      from django.conf import settings
      from django.conf.urls.static import static
      
      urlpatterns = [
          # ...
          url(r'^lab_members/', include('lab_members.urls', namespace='lab_members')),
          # ...
      ]
