Migrating Legacy Group forums to bbPress 2.2.4

    @palmdoc

    Can anyone share if they are using legacy Group forums and successfully migrated over to bbPress 2.2.4 using this guide?

    http://codex.buddypress.org/user/buddypress-site-administration/migrating-from-old-forums-to-bbpress-2/

    It’s not working well for me as the Forum listing shows only the Group forums instead of the Forum discussion listing despite me editing the Forums page and putting
    [bbp-forum-index] in it
    Creating a new page with [bbp-forum-index] also doesn’t give the desired result.
    I have disabled all plugins but bbPress and Buddypress, reverted to the default Buddypress theme and I still get the problem.
    Appreciate feedback/tips TIA @mercime

    I tried resetting the bbPress forums from Tools/Forums to try from scratch and it’s worse – lost all the Group forum links.
    Anyone can help? Why am I seeing a Forums page like this instead of the discussion list?

    No it doesn’t work (I just restored the database from backup). Instead of showing a list of discussion threads (sorted by freshness) it shows Group forums as the root (which people can post in) and all the group forums.
    [bbp-forum-index] in a new page also gets the same result
    Have disabled all plugins but bbPress and Buddypress to no avail. bbPress 2.3 update doesn’t help.
