    This is a tricky problem.

    It’s easy to remove the ability entirely to post new topics for all forums (by removing the ability from the “member” role) but to keep a forum visible but not allow a new topic to be created would require intercepting the forum list from the “add new post” sections.

    If you can live with not allowing any member to create a new topic you can do this:

    http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/only-key-holders-add-topics#post-15339

    Then only moderators and above could create topics.

    This request comes up at least once a month, someone might try to tackle it someday (but don’t look at me!)
