I highly recommend you read Joomla's documentation at http://docs.joomla.org to find the answers you need, especially the following pages:

http://docs.joomla.org/How_do_you_assign_a_module_to_a_position%3F
http://docs.joomla.org/How_do_you_assign_a_module_to_specific_pages%3F

> and edit the slogans?

Instructions for editing the slogans are found in a popup when you mouseover the "List of slogans" text when editing the module instance. Those instructions read:

"Enter the list of slogans you want rotated, one slogan per line. Optionally, add a URL to which a slogan will link by using the format slogan|URL. You may also add HTML attributes to the link by using the format slogan|URL|attribute1='value' attribute2='value2'."

Example slogans are provided in the "Example slogans.txt" file (http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~tim-alwaysreformed/mod-sloganator/trunk/view/head:/Example%20slogans.txt) included in the module's zip file (https://launchpad.net/mod-sloganator/+download).

More instructions on formatting the list of slogans can be found here:

Just for the record here, I offered you paid support outside this Launchpad answer thread, so am setting this thread's status to "answered."

Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask Marko for more information if necessary.
