Quick registration form in guest notice: possible?

When my forum was based on the vBulletin 3 series, I had a quick registration plugin installed that displayed a tasteful, low-profile registration form on the front page to unregistered visitors. The board averaged about 20 to 25 new legitimate registrations a day.

After the site was migrated to vBulletin 4.1.*, the old quick registration hack no longer worked. I haven't been able to find any kind of decent quick registration hack/plugin that places a registration form on the front page. I found something on another site, but it's Web 1.0 UGLY. I spent a long time tweaking the template, and I don't want to ruin the appearance of the site with some form that looks like it's something out of some guestbook script from 1996.

Even though I have a notice displayed to guests encouraging them to register, the number of new users plunged to two to four a day just after the migration. The formless notice just doesn't cut it.

Is there a way to incorporate a registration form into a notice that appears to guests?

Maybe you could try to modify the one you liked to work with vb4.

I don't have advanced programming skills, nor do many other vBulletin forum owners/administrators.

Also, I really never found Linux forum-style "do it yourself" answers to be very helpful. I'm not looking for free work, but it would be nice to know if anyone else managed to do it.

Where is the one you have found? If it works, it should be easy for me to make it look decent.
