 In order to work properly Django AutoComplete needs some javascript files.
 These files are contained in the :file:`autocomplete/media` directory and
-*must* be served from your ``{{ MEDIA_URL }}``.
+*must* be served from your ``{{ STATIC_URL }}``. This is easiest to achieve
+by adding ``'autocomplete'`` to your ``INSTALLED_APPS`` and using
+the built-in support for static files in Django 1.3 and above.
 .. note::
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
