sorry, just getting back here (been swamped!).
I had to update the module to make this work, for whatever reason. don't know exactly if it was do to the move or if the person who gave us the site files missed something. once I updated it, it started working.
I probably should have just done that from the start but since I'm still finding my way through Drupal, I wasn't sure of the ramifications.
Thanks for the help though.
