Getting Help



If you have come here to seek help with installation problems, be sure to check out the :doc:`Installation Troubleshooting </1.0/InstallTroubleshooting>` page first!

There are several ways to receive help when you're stuck. Whether you need help with TurboGears or a component within, like SQLObject or Kid, you can find a resource here.

Mailing Lists

Mailing lists are a great way to talk about what's happening with TurboGears, though they also serve as a great place to request help from experienced individuals. Here is a table of mailing lists for TurboGears and its components.


Please note that for some of these lists, messages from new members are moderated to reduce spam. So if you post a message and it does not appear on the list immediatley, please wait a few hours before resending it, since it is probably just waiting to be approved by a moderator.

TurboGears -- This is the primary mailing list for TurboGears users. If you're running a TurboGears release and have questions, comments or suggestions, this is the place to go.

TurboGears-Trunk -- If you're running code directly from svn and have questions or comments about things that are not in a current release, this is the list for you.

TurboGears-Announcements -- A very low volume moderated list for announcements.

TurboGears-Docs -- Mailing list for the documentation editors. If you have questions or comments about the documentation or would like to help, write to this list (member-only-posting group).

This wiki is the central repository for the official TurboGears documentation. Start by visiting the :doc:`index` and there select the version of TurboGears you are using.

The :doc:`RoughDocs </1.0/RoughDocs>` section acts as a collection point for user-contributed and unpolished documentation. We encourage all to contribute, but at the same time we can't vouch for the accuracy of the included information.
