    You are correct, I can see a lot of localhost URLs in your source code – localhost:8888/tangledhairstudio It looks like (for whatever unexplained reason) there may have been an error in the search and replace step.

    Your goal at this point would probably be to take another crack at replacing all instances of that string in your database with tangledhairstudio.co.uk

    Looking at your above examples, my first thought is that the formatting may not have been complete when you updated the URLs in the database.

    Example:

    UPDATE wp_posts SET guid = replace(guid, 'http://www.oldurl','http://www.newurl');

    Whereas you appear to have done this using incomplete URLs (unless you just used the below as an example).

    UPDATE wp_posts SET guid = replace(guid, ‘http://localhost:8888/’,’http://www.’);

    The sub-directory in the old URLs – localhost:8888/tangledhairstudio – could have caused an issue.
