There are many ways to get help — from online documentation to support from the community on Discord, IRC or forums. If you are experiencing problems, you should consider reporting a bug.



Wesnoth maintains a presence on Discord through its own official Discord server. Several channels are bridged to IRC in order to allow Discord and IRC users to interact with each other.


IRC (Internet Relay Chat) is a time-tested communications system that offers greater flexibility and extensibility than modern chat platforms. For more information, check out Wikipedia's article and

Unless otherwise noted, all channels are hosted at the Libera.Chat IRC network. If you don't have an IRC client installed or your firewall blocks ports 6667, 6697, and other supported ports, you can use Libera.Chat's web client instead.
