OK I am stumped?

I have created child forums for restaurants

Allow new messages to be posted in this forum. (this worked good)

and I'm not sure why (circled in red) is still showing up?

All the above child forums have test posts in them

what i am trying to do is make the bottom circled in red disappear?

That is intrinsic to a forum. That checkbox disables new posts, but it doesn't disable old posts.

It sounds like what you want is a category node.
