    @cbryson89 Are you trying to configure the default modules? If so, you can go to the modules page and read the configuration settings. For example, if you want to display the current weather data, go to the module page. Take a look at the “Using the Module” section to see how your config.js should be modified. For the current weather example, you’ll have to add

            module: 'currentweather',
            position: 'top_right',  // This can be any of the regions.
                                        // Best results in left or right regions.
            config: {
                // See 'Configuration options' for more information.
                location: 'Amsterdam,Netherlands',
                locationID: '', //Location ID from 
                appid: 'abcde12345abcde12345abcde12345ab' // API key.

    to your config.js file. Then you’ll have to edit the location, and appid sections based on what you read in the Configuration Options section. As you can see, you’ll need to get an OpenWeather API key. After you get that, put the api key into your config.js in the appid: 'APIKEY HERE' section.

    Use this technique for adding/configuring other modules. Mostly all of the modules you can use for MagicMirror have a configuration page that will let you know what you need to setup to get the modules to work.
