How about adding a new permission used to be there is phpbb2?
Can read forum but you can't read topics, I explain:
You can read forum and see topic titles like:
https://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewforum.php?f=84
But you can't access to topics

To let guests see what kind of things are discussed on your board but require them to register in order to actually read them. It has been requested quite a bit on phpBB.com (for example, the Allow users to list topics but not read it topic). It seems like a Can read topics permission (which defaults to yes for any role that can read the forum) would be sufficient for this.

I don't recall phpBB 2 having that feature, but I probably didn't make too much use of permissions then. Regardless, I suspect that is off-topic for this RRC and yops should start another for this (if such an RFC doesn't already exist).
