Django TemplateSyntaxError – ‘staticfiles’ is not a registered tag library

After upgrading to Django 3.0, I get the following TemplateSyntaxError:

In template /Users/alasdair//myproject/myapp/templates/index.html, error at line 1
'staticfiles' is not a registered tag library. Must be one of: admin_list admin_modify admin_urls cache i18n l10n log static tz

Here is my template

{% load staticfiles %}
<img src="{% static 'my_image.html' %}">

Answer

{% load staticfiles %} and {% load admin_static %} were deprecated in Django 2.1, and removed in Django 3.0.

If you have any of the following in your template:

{% load staticfiles %}
{% load static from staticfiles %}
{% load admin_static %}

You should replace the tag with simply:

{% load static %}
