Major issue now? or just more of me
So I deleted cache, cookies and all was well until I clicked the main AAPK image in the banner ad space and the coded destination URL within the image is appending "/catalog/" to the end of "https://www.allaboutpocketknives.com/" causing a maintenance white page... and after looking further anywhere on the site that appends catalog after the .com is having the same issue. The pages that do not have the catalog appended come up fine. Like the price guide, news, directory, etc..
