porcelain tile problem!
We pulled up the laminite flooring and tried to scrape off the glue the best we could. Then we laid the porcelain tile that was 16" x 16" and the premixed adhesive never seems to dry after 1 month. Then we grouted it and of couse it cracked, but now I'm at the point that I don't know what to do. I don't know if I should re-grout, replace the tiles that still aren't sticking or re-do the whole floor. My whole kitchen is a mess! Please help! Can the existing tile be saved?

You should have never used the pre-mixed jun........ ah ah ..stuff. How did that happen?

You must removed everything including the mastic and start over. You can start removing the tiles right now, but don't start over until you've told us the entire story and exactly what you've got starting with the substrate. It'll take several posts to get you on the right track.
