Override /forums/ with WP page containing shortcodes?

    I want to override the bbPress page I get when I go to mysite.com/forums/ with a WordPress page containing bbPress shortcodes but I haven’t been able to get it to work.

    • My WP page slug is ‘forums’ and contains:
      [bbp-topic-index]
      [bbp-topic-form]

    • In my bbPress settings my ‘forums base’ is set to ‘forums’.

    I’ve tried a bunch of other things (like setting the WP page template to ‘bbPress – Forums (Index)’ and deleting archive-forums.php in my theme. Nothing seems to work.

    Also if I change the the page slug & permalink to ‘forums2′ and visit that, it works as intended.

    Any ideas? I’m thinking about an .htaccess workaround but that seems excessively hacky. Thanks.
