NavBar directs to incorrect URL

Hi, I have vB4 Suite and use vBAdvanced for my forum portal.

On the Navbar, most of the links are fine.
What's New? , Articles , and Forum all direct to their correct locations.

HOWEVER, the Blog redirects incorrectly.

So, my portal is at
The blog is located at . This link is also what is displayed when I hover the "Blog" link on the navbar. But what it is directed to is entirely different, and doesn't work.

If I click the navbar link from my main forum page ( , it redirects fine.

It's a vBadvanced conflict line, right?
I'm sure the solution is a really simple one, I just can't for the life of me think of where it is.
I can't ask on the vBadvanced site because it's down for me at the moment.

I don't know.

vBadvanced uses the default vBulletin navigation bar. It SHOULD be fine. Like I said, all other links are.

As you can see in the image attached, hovering over "Blogs" shows the "/forum/blog.php" (the correct link) but the link changes when you click it to "/forum/blog/blog.php" but ONLY from the vBadvanced user portal. Click the tab from any other page, and it works correctly.

Edit :
Ah, shit. Seems like it's actually worse than that.

I just tried to delete a post, and during it was directed to an incorrect URL again, thus the process did not complete.

There should only be one /forum/ there. What have I done? What have I broken? DX

That's not going to help at the moment because it's turned off/closed due to fixing things.

The issue might even come from having the /forum and /blog values in a table somewhere.
I'm sure that the fix is really simple, I'm just not looking in the right places. I feel like I've been through this before, but I can't remember what I did to rectify it.

Update : I fixed the second issue ( by emptying the Forum Component URL box from the Options setting.

I still need to fix the "/forum/blog/blog.php" issue though.
The Blog Component URL box is already empty from that setting, so it's not being caused by the same issue.
Is it a .htaccess issue? I don't really want to play with it though because I don't know how to edit these properly.
