done that, and refreshed templates and themes but did not fix. I have actually restored now from a backup I took after the fresh install. I will start again on my mods and just keep a close eye after each one.
One other thing guys, the backup I done was just by copying all the files after the fresh install to my PC through Filezilla. I did not do a backup using the ACP. I realize that I have probably not backed up the database doing it this way. Going forward if I do use the backup in the ACP will this backup the database and all my files/config etc, or do I also need to copy all files to my PC as well as the ACP backup?
