Can’t get custom template pages working

Note: I'm following the instructions for creating custom template pages here:

When I use the default template "page.php" from my theme, the forum displays just fine.

So I created a custom template in directory /forumwp/, put a new copy of page.php into there, and added the line /* Forum Template: My Forum */ to the top of the new copy of page.php.

Then, in admin settings, for "Default forums template" I set it to "My Forum"

Everything good so far.  And it *IS* grabbing the new custom template page, and NOT the default page.php.  

So here is the problem...
The forum no longer appears unfortunately.  Where the threads and topics should appear, its just blank space now.  Although the rest of the page displays correctly.
What could the problem be?
