Still missing the WP_Query enclosing brackets!! -- new WP_Query( array( ... ) ); ... seriously @birgire got it right on the nose for you, but hopefully the reference links I provided should offer some more insight and clarity... if you study them! XD

comment Lightbox popup on WooCommerce add_to_cart action
Wow thanks for such a brilliant answer that's perfect!! -- I did try prettyPhoto but found that it was difficult to alter the dimensions in CSS without also changing those for the gallery popups (although in hindsight a bit of jQuery could have done this!) -- anyway thanks again!! :)

Thanks for the down-vote! I appreciate that this is perhaps not the most clear or direct question but I was trying to cover a lot of ignorance in a small space. Next time you could please leave me some tips on how to improve my question?

comment Is it possible to import a wordpress backup from a single site in to a multi-site configuration?
Thanks Chris, but after playing around with things for a while I decided to just go with a separate install (I had to get the project moving). I might try this again though as I can see the benefits. Thank you for the sage advice too. I guess every developer does 'find their own way' a lot of the time and can't always recommend those practices to someone else.

Thanks Zach, I know a lot of plugins/themes aren't free, and if by "this site" you to mean S.O. then the answer in unashamedly YES. Help for free? Damn right I'll use that if I can. Why? Two reasons. 1) I can't afford to pay for help, if I could then I wouldn't have posted the question here in the first place. 2) This is one of the ways developers are 'more than willing' to support each other as you say. If you're lucky enough to be able to throw money at every problem that comes your way then good for you. Unfortunately for me it's not a case of I wont pay $75, but that I can't.

Sorry Zach but I don't think I'll be paying $75+ for a backup plugin!
