    The first "forums" is the directory you placed XF in, the second "forums" is the content type. Placing XF in your root directory would solve it.

    Thanks for the response. I have a wordpress blog at the root, so don't want the forum installed in the root.

    You can change the route from "forums" to something else using this Addon http://xenforo.com/community/resources/route-changer.447/

    Alternatively you can change the directory. For example on here the folder is called community so you get community/forums, but in your case as the folder is called forums you get forums/forums.

    Yeah, it may be best to change it to community as forums/forums just looks wrong from a user perspective. Shame really, seems an un-necessary extra sub-folder in the url.

    Its not really a subfolder but a "route" which you can change using Jake's addon.

    /forums/ /threads/ /pages/ you can see where this is going... much more than just forums: /blogs/ /images/ etc.
    If you're only running /forums then it does read a little odd.
