I want to have a better articles section, but I don't want to spend the cash on a fancy article manager. How do I make article threads similar to these: https://www.livingreefs.com/articles/. I want to have it to the threads in the article section are like those ones so it works better for articles.

To achieve something like that you will probably have to invest in some type of addon to do a section that looks similar to that. I'm not sure what that site is using but there is a really good addon made by @Bob that costs $60 but you won't find a better Article System around.

That is the problem. It costs $60. I read somewhere that they achieved it with simple template modifications. I want to do template modifications to make my articles forum look similar to the site I linked.

I've never heard of a template modification that can do that. It almost looks similar to the old Better Blogs addon or something similar. If you want to do true articles that will stand out from others getting Bob's addon is the way to go. It's a pretty extensive system with tons of features and options. It's very powerful and coded by one of the best addon creators on xF.
