Re: Disable forum creation
Find the following block of code in the groups/create.php template file (in themes/bp-default, lines 49-61)
<?php if ( function_exists('bp_forums_setup') ) : ?>
.. blah blah blah..
<?php endif; ?>
Just comment that whole section out (put a /* before and a */ after this block of code) and your users will never get the option to create a forum
