Default silly question: confused about the oil drain plug...

So I went to change my oil tonight and on my tempo and other cars I've seen they have a horizontal bolt to undo to drain the oil...My ranger doesn't have that as far as I can tell...It the drain plug that main vertical bolt? seems like I'll get oil everywhere! lol...

I'll wait on a clarification here and do it tomorrow.

thanks folks.

I agree. I always get nervous when doing something new for the first time on my truck.
