    I believe most of what you need is already available but this part got me. Do you need to know exactly what page people were on when they were prompted to register? And should the registration be 'over' that page or can simply redirecting to the signup page suffice?

    If you go to your admin CP, click 'Users' in the top header -> List User Groups -> *Select the Unregistered / Unconfirmed group* then remove their permissions accordingly. If you have disabled enough (could just do all) then they shouldn't be able to view any of your forums, topics, posts, members etc and will simply be presented with a login / register page.

    To re-enable, simply grant the relevant permissions again.

    Well, I did say "mostly what you need" :)

    And the above takes 3 clicks so not far off.

    /admin.php?user-group-permissions/unregistered-unconfirmed.1/ and click the top 'Not Set (No)' button, scroll down and click 'Update'

    This is exactly the same as what I have described except he has given you the URL, so it does the same thing.

    What if someone is already registered and they're just looking to login? They are going to have problems as a registered (but not logged in user) is going to be treated as a 'guest' until they actually login.

    The login page has a 'No create an account' button so it is somewhat a registration page already.
