ImportError when importing Flask WTF forms

I can't see where I'm going wrong. I have the latest WTF forms installed but I still get this error.

Method:

from flask.ext.wtf import Form
from wtforms import PasswordField, validators, fields
from wtforms.fields import TextField, BooleanField
from wtforms.validators import Required, Email, EqualTo


Result:

Traceback (most recent call last):

flask_wtf
wtforms

Answer

According to the official quickstart, flask.ext.wtf should be flask_wtf.

So you have to import it as

from flask_wtf import Form

At least I have, I installed from pip.
