Hi there,

I don't see you installed Express quick start, - it seems like you simply installed Express as a standalone template.

Alex Smirnov I am not novice with Joomla I have installed the quickstart

Hi isamar,

I didn't mean to question your skills, so please don't take this personally. The bottom line is your Express quick start pack has not been installed properly, which in my opinion, means it has not been installed at all. Otherwise at the end of installation you would have arrived into the site very similar to our Express demo site, with full content and navigation installed.

Whatever you've done, I suggest you delete it and install from clean slate.

Regards,

Alex

Dear Alex,

Steps that I have done in order for you to see that I have all correct except the database file that Touriq has mentioned and don't know where to retrieve it from.
Downloaded quickstart, extract the files and upload them through ftp. And not install Joomla and then install just the template.

Hi Touriq I thought you were going to do the whole quickstart files.

My hosting provider does not offer such an option to extract the files. Also I do not use localhost for testing therefore I always upload files directly through ftp.
Also If I was to do that through wamp or any other program I should have also in use the sql file that you mention which I do not have.

Please run away from this dodgy "hosting" as soon as you can and get yourself a decent, Joomla-friendly one. You won't be able to run a web-site without being able to extract files, it's that simple.

Dear Alex my hosting is one of the best in the list.
Second as I a consider my self a step before expert in Joomla I can assure you that half of the people I work with and they work with Joomla NOONE follows the procedure of extracting quickstart through hosting use as they want to make sure everything is ok. My hosting provides the option to install Joomla basic template ONLY.

I am sorry, but with all due respect to you, I can not agree with your evaluation of your hosting, especially, considering this:
[b] My hosting provides the option to install Joomla basic template ONLY.


Please feel free to PM to Toufiq or me your hosting panel login details and we both will be more than happy to install Express quick start for you (obviously, provided we will be able to extract its onto your server).

Alex
