Thanks for replying.

It gets added when the the first form is submitted - giving the
customer a chance to check their details. and yes I missed off
/shopping-cart/ above, my mistake.

I have just tested on another server, and everything is working as it
should be. (wish I'd thought to do that sonner).

Only difference I can actually see if that on quirm.net there are
several WP installs, but a subdomain shouldn't be affected by the
overall htaccess - if that is what is causing it. Plus until a while
ago it was working fine in a subfolder.

I'm going to contact the hosting company to see if they can find any
difference in the setups between the 2 -because it has be stumped.

Sorry for posting - I should have tested elsewhere first.

*sigh* that's one morning work wasted.

my mind is on a permanent tangent
