If you switch to a WP theme like 2020, does the issue persist?
If not, then the issue is in Avada.
Thanks am in the process of backing up and testing just that.
Only other snippet of info I have is the JQuery Migrate Helper showing “jquery-migrate-1.4.1-wp.js?ver=1.4.1-wp:56 JQMIGRATE: ‘ready’ event is deprecated”
Would that have an bearing on the issue?
Thanks again for your help.
A deprecated notice is usually a warning that it may become an error in the future.
But for the time being it should work.
Thanks for your attention & help @shanebp, it was a theme issue and so this can be closed.
