I am placing apps into my fluxbox startup file as per the instructions, however nothing starts up except fluxbox.

It doesn't matter what app I try, so it isn't an app problem.

here is my startup file:

#!/bin/sh
#
# fluxbox startup-script:
#
# Lines starting with a '#' are ignored.

# Change your keymap:
xmodmap "/home/josh/.Xmodmap"

# Applications you want to run with fluxbox.
# MAKE SURE THAT APPS THAT KEEP RUNNING HAVE AN ''&'' AT THE END.
tint2 &
tilda &

# And last but not least we start fluxbox.
# Because it is the last app you have to run it with ''exec'' before it.

exec fluxbox
# or if you want to keep a log:
# exec fluxbox -log "/home/josh/.fluxbox/log"

I have also tried tests such as "touch ~/testwoked" and such, nothing works.

It makes no difference if the file is executable or not.

you need to use startfluxbox instead of fluxbox when you are going to launch fluxbox.

(you didn't specify how you launch fluxbox but i am guessing here with some kind of experience)
