Try clicking the root link in the breadcrumbs (the one next to home), it switches between the two! Odd behaviour indeed.
I only want the forum index to show, that should be the ‘root’ or ‘base’ of the forums. However if i give my index page the same slug as the forum base (i.e. forums) then i get the page i don’t want, not the pretty templated one.
I have been stuck on this one thing for a whole day after creating a lovely index page and I don’t want to be stopped by this!
If anyone can help it would be very much appreciated,
