Hello
I have a very standard layout forum its going well
I have not yet used the articles types.
I am wanting to see some basic forum layouts using articles
Could you point me to a few?

Also where would you put articles in my forum?
Would you create a new forum node just for articles?
Or would you enable it on several forums?

Who is the person repsonsible for making an article
Is it a moderator, or can any member start an article?

There seems to be so much to learn

It's really up to you how you implement articles.

Anyone with the ability to create a thread can post an article, if the forum supports that thread type.

When dedicated, it is simply a display output of a thread. You can see it on your own forum with one click on an existing forum, try one with lots of images.

There's not a lot to learn. It's a thread that looks different. If a user can post a thread they can post an article. To control who does in non-dedicated forums you can use an add-on by @Ozzy47.

In mixed-content forums you may want Discussions by all and Articles by different groups. This cannot be controlled at the node or group level. The add-on does it:

Yeah in mixed content type that’s right. There isn’t a permission for that and will need to use an add-on. But if he wanted to use it for news or for specific user group, he can just create a node with article thread type and set the user group permissions.
