how much does it cost to have someone mod vbulletin?

I was just wondering if I have to hire someone, what is an average ballpark figure of what they charge?

Another thing, I've seen websites have something where a user can select something in their profile (like gender), and then a picture will automatically generate beside their name when they post because of that choice. Is that easy to do?

all depends on how much work you need done and what type of mods you require for your forum.

That (gender image in postbit) is very easy to do.

actually, Kall forgot to mention that the hack for gender already exists in the releases here...

and there is no average salary for coding... it all depend on each coder who evaluate their job's values... and even some would do the job for free if they think it worth it...

Thanks for pointing that out.

I wasn't just wanting to use the gender one, I wanted to use other options as well. Would that be pretty easy to figure out coding once I got the gender one?

If you have never installed a mod of any kind before, then most likely it wont be two easy. I skrewed up many a things in my early days trying to install a mod or two. But now ive gotten it down to an art. I can do it for you pretty inexspensive, if you would like to go that route. Just pm me if your interested.

I was just looking at this website christianforums
It has a lot of these modded features in it. How much would that cost?

ok, i think you did not understand here... nobody will tell you how it cost if you are not able to list the exact things you want...

vBulletin.org is not a place where you pay to have some job done... most of the time, the tools exists, you just have to take the time to learn how to install them... this is the main part here...

if you are far from being able to install a addon or a product, you can make a Service Request, hire someone for the job... there is the place where you will be able to ask for a quote related to a specific list of features to install on your site...

Bear in mind that unlicensed members cannot use the service requests forum.

It all depends on what you want to have done. If it's already a pre done mod it will come cheap but if you wish to have a custom mod that only you have it comes much more expensive.Most of the time you have to work with the dev as not everything you could want would have the same price.

Thanks Nexialis, but they are probably quite capable of reading the forum list and seeing that for themself.

If you want something like Christian Forums done for you, expect to pay thousands. Personally, I think that forum is modded terribly. Atheism FTW!

Anyway, if you must have your board modded, be sure to select a person with advanced PHP, XHTML, CSS, AJAX, and vB knowledge.
Also, I must give you important advice:
Do not do this unless you have serious money to through around.
If you can't do most modding yourself, you'll constantly need to pay others to maintain, upgrade, secure etc your board.

I am wanting to buy and use VB. However I am nervous about what has been said about needing serious money to make modifications. Is it not built into the interface for most needed modifications?
Just what are the modifications that will cost so much to have done?
I am getting freaked out now.
I want a forum that works well and is fast and simple to use. I don't want to be a programmer.
