Problem has been resolved. This issue was with my browser not the theme.

Out of the box, Weaver Xtreme theme may not look as pretty as some. But it's the most versatile free theme I've discovered since I started creating websites way back when. When using Weaver Xtreme, you too can make your website look exactly the way you want.
When you install Weaver Xtreme you'll discover that there's a lot of subthemes to choose from. My personal preference is Plain Full Width.
You can also select the Customizer Interface Level to suit your own level of expertise. So if you're not very technically minded you can choose the Basic option which is enough for most users. I'm a geek so I use the Full Level.
My websites look absolutely nothing like the Weaver Xtreme demo.
But I digress.
Even though it's a free theme the level of support is outstanding. For not the first time, I've gone to https://forum.weavertheme.com/ to seek help with a theme related issue. This time it was a trivial matter of the permalink not displaying properly when editing a post. Trivial or not, the developer (Weaver himself) has taken a personal interest in my problem and offered to look into it on my website. Yes, I've given him admin access. Apart from this time being a test website so I have no concerns with almost anyone being an admin, I know from previous experience that I can trust Weaver. Yes, he personally went in and fixed a different problem I had once before.
I don't have the premium version of the theme. I don't need the premium version of the theme. It's just so versatile I can do anything I want using the theme's customizer, plugins and Custom CSS without upgrading. Last time Weaver helped me I offered a donation and was given the details for his favourite charity. I'll be donating again this time.
I'll update this post when the issue has been completely resolved.
