I appreciate any help I can get at this point. I've replaced the slave cylinder and bled the clutch, and it would work for a couple days to a week, then it would stop going into gear, although it goes into gear when it's stopped. I then figured that it must be the master cylinder. Replaced, bled, will not go into gear at all when running.

What am I overlooking?

I'll hazard a wild and mechanically uninformed guess that the clutch itself is completely blown? I had a clutch go out after a very hard shift in a Porsche and I could only get it into 2nd gear.
I can't recall if I could shift other gears when the engine was off. I was stranded and called a tow truck, but I think I couldn't access any gears but 2nd whether running or not.
It's not a helpful answer but maybe worth researching as a possibility.

What led to needing to replace the slave cylinder? Same issues? Everything sounds hydraulic related. The clutch hydraulics are notoriously difficult to properly bleed. Even with a power bleeder it took a while to get all the air out.

You'll have to check the mechanics of the clutch fork and pivot next. I've heard of a rare issue with the pivot bolt coming loose and causing problems. You could also have a bad clutch pressure plate. But all that requires dropping the transmission, so try to 100% rule out hydraulics first.

When stopped, and you can put it into gear, can you depress the clutch and restart in that gear? If so, then I would lean towards showstop's response, otherwise, its a new clutch.....

Bleeding the clutch, i just hemmoraged fluid at the slave to make sure that there wasn't any air.
