Xenforo working perfectly in subdirectory until installed Wordpress

I'm loving Xenforo! (and spent a good penny) But, I just installed wordpress (Avada theme) to run most of my site. Since, when returning to forum it looks fine until a forum/catagory is chosen then it returns a 404.

Please help!

I don't know how to change the .htaccess file for wp. Xenforo, NP. Where should I look? What should I change?
It's located in the root directory. You can open it in any basic text editor (such as Notepad).

I really don't know much about htaccess but this might work:

After RewriteEngine on, add

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} "/yourxenforofolder/"
  RewriteRule (.*) $1 [L]

I haven't clicked the URL so not sure what the thread is about but in general it's recommended to not visit/use pirate sites.
