Improve user registration workflow for administrators — at Version 1

Description (last modified by r-a-y)

Since 2.7 is all about UX, we should improve the user registration workflow for administrators.

When registration is disabled and the site admin opens up member registration, if the registration and activation pages are not created, we should show an admin message saying that these pages are not created yet.

To be fair, we do add this message:

The following active BuddyPress Components do not have associated WordPress Pages: Activate, Register.

But, that is kind of vague.

We already add an admin message if permalinks are not set up, so adding another admin message here seems okay to me.

Currently, people assume that simply setting the registration and activation pages is enough.

This is one of the most asked questions on the support forums.

We should also remove the "Register" section on the "Pages" screen until registration is open. I brought this up here:

Would appreciate some feedback here before I start patching this up.
