XF 1.x Swap Home and Forum text/functionality?

So here is my site: https://www.bubbleslayer.com/forums

My home page is a wordpress blog which is integrated using XenWord with the forum. I tend to see that people generally use one or the other. They browse the blog, or they browse the forum. I'd like the forum 'home' to send them to the forum root, and where it currently says forum, I'd like it to say "Blog" and send them to the wordpress root. How can I achieve this? I have the premium Adara style.

If you go to: Home -> Options -> Basic Board Information -> Index Page Route

Set the index route to the blogs, I think that would do what you're looking to achieve.

That just sends me to the forum room when I set it as: "/"

I got rid of the home button altogether by removing the home page url from the field. Now how can I add an option to the right of "Forum" which says "Blog" and links to my true domain root?

I inserted this into navigation in templates:

<!-- mytab -->
<li class="navTab PopupClosed"><a href="LINK" class="navLink">TAB LABEL</a></li>

It properly will appear on the navigation bar, however how do I get it in the quick navigation and the sidemenu?

Nevermind...It looks like there was something cached, and it now shows in the sidebare. The quick nav is more forum related, so I'll leave it alone. Thanks for the help.

You can edit this template: quick_navigation_menu and add a custom link there

Right above:
Code:
<li><a href="{xen:link forums}">{xen:phrase forums}</a></li>
this would only show inside the quick navigation popup.
