Failed migration of discussion forum to bbpress 2.3

    Hi,

    I upgraded to Buddypress 1.7 and want to move to bbpress 2.3 as recommended. (I’m running WordPress 3.5.2 with Suffusion 4.4.6 for my theme.) I followed the instructions for migrating the discussion forums as given by: http://codex.buddypress.org/user/buddypress-site-administration/migrating-from-old-forums-to-bbpress-2/

    but the end result is that the forums come up with having no data (i.e., the groups say “there are no forums present”, which wasn’t the case prior to the migration).

    Interestingly, the data itself is still there — I can see it when looking under Activity and also the Groups themselves indicate that there was some recent activity. Not sure exactly what’s broken.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Dylan

    Do you want group forums? http://codex.buddypress.org/group-forums/

    Yes, I do want group forums — it’s what I used previously. (I never used site-wide forums.)

    So, I confirmed that I have the boxed checked in the Settings > Forums pane as shown in the link you provided. Indeed, when I don’t have it checked, none of the forums show up. (Which makes sense to me, given that I only have forums associated with groups.)

    Still, the problem from the update exists — the group forum activity is not being picked-up properly within the forums, though I can see that the activity is still there when looking under “activity”. Seems like something is messed-up in the query to the DB or the DB itself when I added bbpress 2.3.

    Any other thoughts?
