Hi guys,


It took me half an hour to realize the TEMPLATE_DIRS tuple wants an absolute path (I'm on Windows). Now I've finally got it but it could leave some newbies like myself wondering for a while.

So something like replacing the actual comment
# Put strings here, like "/home/html/django_templates".
# Always use forward slashes, even on Windows.

# Put _absolute paths_ here, like "/home/html/django_templates" or "C:/www/foo_project/templates"
# Always use forward slashes, even on Windows.

Other than that, thanks for Django!
