  4. If you want to publish the module to a standard module position of the template click on the first "Create module" button. You will be redirected to the Module Manager. Open the module, select the position of your choice, set the Status to "Published", assign the module to the menu items of your choice and select a widget in the field Widget. Finally click on "Save & Close".
  5. If you want to publish the module inside an article you must enable the plugin Content - Load Modules in Plugin Manager. Then return to the widget, click on "Publish in module" at the top right of the toolbar and copy the syntax {loadposition minitekslider-x} to your notepad. Be careful to use the exact syntax as you see it in the modal window. Then click on the second "Create module" button. You will be redirected to the Module Manager. Open the module, enter the position minitekslider-x from the previous syntax, set the Status to "Published", assign the module to the menu items of your choice and select a widget in the field Widget. Click on "Save & Close". Finally open the article of your choice in the Article Manager and paste the previous syntax {loadposition minitekslider-x} to the article content area.
