Just about any question you can imagine for R has been asked usually
several times.  Since you don't explain what specifically you are
looking for help with, the best start is to go to the
https://www.r-project.org/help.html page and start with those
suggestions.  Nabble is another good choice, and simply entering "r
[topic]" in a search engine will usually yield hundreds of results.
