I tried above (this time I uploaded through ftp instead of the dasboard).
Still no Luck – I didn't change any settings and it's gone all over the place (see screenshot). Again the preview shows and works, but not the live page. This time the filter check boxes show up (un-styled), underneath the footer?? and the searchbox has no icons in it (and no border styling).
I will try the widget but I'm not at all confident it will make any difference.
If it is something to do with the data storage, is that to do with the wp database? – the isp set this up. Is there something I should ask or check with them? If so what?
Ps I will test on another server to confirm this.
