How to make registration required?

I'm considering making the whole board registration required, like facebook. I want to make registration super easy, of course. I'd like to have a sweet home page that leads every peron to visit to register.


I am allowing/encouraging facebook logins.

Now guests can't view anything on the forum until they register.

You can link directly to the registration form with this link:
