The following tips are for users of Apache Cordova who want to get help.

== Search the archives ==

Your question may have already been answered. Make sure you search at least [[http://groups.google.com/group/phonegap|PhoneGap Google]] group archives before you ask your question. Go to the !PhoneGap Google group and use the search field in the top right of the page.
 
== Provide details ==

Give as many details as possible. Incomplete questions won't likely be answered.

Include the following at a minimum:
 * what version number of !PhoneGap are you using?
 * which platform and version you are testing on? iOS 4.0, Android 2,2, !BlackBerry 6.0, etc.
 * a detailed description of your problem.
 * is this happening in the emulator only, phone only or both?

Select a concise, informative subject for the post. For example, include:
 * Platform, if issue is specific to Android, iOS, etc
 * Keyword examples: version, jar file, phonegap plugin, deviceready event, build
 * Short phrase summarizing the problem

You may also want to include:
 * some sample code that illustrates the problem.
 * logs taken while the problem was reproduced.

If the code or logs are huge, let's say over 20 lines please think about using a web service like [[https://gist.github.com/|Gist]] or [[http://pastebin.com/|Pastebin.com]]. Alternatively if you have a [[http://dropbox.com|Dropbox]] account put the file in your public folder. Then share the link in the email rather than mailing around a bunch of large files.

== An example of question ==

'''Wrong:'''
!PhoneGap does not work for me!

'''Right:'''
I get a security error on !PhoneGap 0.9.4 when I try to open a database using the Android 3.0 emulator. You can see the code I used here: https://gist.github.com/937307 and the logs I collected here: https://gist.github.com/937315. I have looked at the archives and the commits but did not find any solution. Does anyone know what could be the issue and whether this has been fixed?
