GeoDjango .SHP file Specifications.

When using GeoDjango I seem to run into errors with shapefiles other than the provided World Map TM_WORLD_BORDERS-0.3.

What are the steps to create a shapefile with the propor fields that are needed to get the geom working within the admin? Is there a way to document that in the GeoDjango tutorial?

Currently the shapefiles that I have are not being shown in the Admin of GeoDjango after they are uploaded with the Layer Mapping examples provided by the tutorial.

I'm not a GIS expert, but wiki page may be outdated (7 years old), I would rather use geodjango-tutorial.

Django is not responsible for ESRI Shapefile geospatial data format. You can always ask on the geodjango mailing list. Closing per TicketClosingReasons/UseSupportChannels.
