Module Installation Problem

Featured Lock Resolved
I am having a problem with certain modules appearing after installing the quickstart files for the Fiction template. I thought after I did that, I would have a replica of the demo site. However, I'm not seeing the menus or the joomlaslide module.

I can't even find the joomlaslide module in my Module Manager. However, when I try to install the module, it tells me that a slot is already being used for that module.

That tells me the module is installed, at least partially, but I can't find it.

Here's a link to my site:

You can see that I did manage to update the logo!


Never mind. I fixed my own problem. I simply went into the ftp, deleted the modules that weren't appearing in the module manager, and then reinstalled them. They are all appearing and working great now.

Must have been a bad install or something.

Finally got it to work. I installed on Blue Host, so there were some tricks to connecting to the database, but after working with your instructions and figuring out Blue Host, I finally got the demo site working on my domain.

Now to replace all the sample content with my own content and GoozerNation, formerly a static HTML site, will become a Joomla! site. If you're wondering what GoozerNation is, we are a member-run site of Goozex, Inc. The leading game trading site. On GoozerNation, members write articles and reviews about video games on all platforms and devices. We also write movie reviews and commentary. We even published a book review once.

The joomla site can be found at: (stay tuned for original and unique content)

The current, static HTML site is:

Thank you so very much JoomShaper. You guys rock and my entire team is very excited about this template.

Please just delete what you have installed. Now download the quickstart pack of Fiction Template from here. Please follow the tutorial step by step and install quickstart pack.
