Forum seems to fail...

The default forum will not allow me to view it, it will re-direct me to my home page of my site not the forum topic.

The above URL is what the forum points to but will not open, just re-directs to home page.

Can you provide the actual URL of your forum?
A link to your site please as I don't really understand. All your screenshot shows is a forum. And, your link just confused me as it's not actually your site.

Edit: everytime ajs....
Not sure what you expect us to do with a address...
Sorry, I thought I explained correctly.
Looks like you've not made all the necessary .htaccess edits for the Google SEO plugin.

Reason we asked for a URL is because going to the home page, which is what you said, might be caused by something else wrong; we weren't sure if it said 404 or not (which it does).
Go to the ACP >> Configuration >> Plugins >> Google SEO and it should tell you what you need to do.

It tells you what to do. Add what it lists to your .htaccess file.
As it says there, you have to add those rewrite rules to your .htaccess file...
