Can no longer use matching forum root & page slug after WooCommerce 3.0 update

  • Dustin L.


    WordPress 4.7.3
    bbPress 2.5.12

    Everything was working fine with WooCommerce 2.6.14. I had forum root set to ‘community’ and I created a page with the slug ‘community’. When navigating to /community WP was displaying my page.

    After updating to WooCommerce 3.0.1 WP now displays the forum root (archive-forum.php) instead of the my custom page (page-community.php).

    If I switch to storefront or any of the recent Twenty * themes the problem goes away. If I use my theme and disable all other plugins, the problem persists. So this seems to be a conflict between my theme and WooCommerce that is causing this issue.

    I can resolve the issue by changing either the forum root or my page slug but I would prefer not to do that. Any ideas on how I might be able to resolve this and keep my URLs intact?
