Hey, So I started messing around with Article pages, and I wanted to add an XFMG Slider widget to the article page.
There is no option for this specific type of forum. So was just wondering how could this be achieved.

I was thinking of a slider at the top and a slider in the sidebar.

Side note: This is new territory for me cause I'm used to there being an option for widgets. So please don't yell at me for not knowing this lol.

Man, you are amazing.
I do have another question.
Are we suppose to place the code
<xf:widget key="widget_key" />
in a specific place inside the template.
I just put it where I thought it should go, but then made sure to Relocate slider

Just want to make sure I am correctly editing these templates the right way.
Trying to not make mistakes, and cause errors.
Widgets can be added to templates manually using: <xf:widget key="widget_key" /> .

In general, yes.

It may require conditional statements if you only want it show based on certain crieria, and Less/HTML to modify the styling, etc.
I have a lot to learn lol.
My biggest problem is not understanding what the string of code is saying, and what it is actually doing.
Not anybody's fault but mine, and I'm a study up on this stuff. But again you are amazing...
Pretty sure ill need more help before the weeks out.
