Description

Hi

I'm new to djungo.
I was following the instructions of the tutorial at : http://www.djangoproject.com/documentation/0.96/tutorial01/
I got an error : "got an unexpected keyword argument 'max_length'"

After looking in Google i found a place that said to change to maxlength instead of max_length and indeed the
problem was fixed.

you may want to update the article.
You may also want to add a link to download the mysql related component that needs to be installed so that Django can talk to mysql.

Another thing I found was :

python manage.py sqlinitialdata polls
This action has been renamed. Try './manage.py sqlcustom polls'.

Sounds like you are using a subversion checkout of Django with the 0.96 tutorial, or vice-versa. The tutorial you reference does not refer to the max_length parameter, since that was introduced after 0.96. Similarly, sqlinitial did exist in 0.96 and was changed afterwards.
