Thanx

So you want someone to rewrite the entire vBulletin 4 style from the ground up in responsive for free?

You'd pretty much be redoing the entire style from scratch.

I suspect something like this, for a single well skilled person is a 60-120 hour job. To do It right, you're going to be rewriting every template and css bit from scratch.

You'd be looking at 2k~ minimum, if you were to pay someone to do this for you.

Bit of an over exaggeration of having to redo the entire theme, most things can be accomplished with CSS alone and if you are not fussy about having every single function that the full site offers responsiveness is more than accomplish-able with CSS and a couple of template tweaks.

Ive been working on on for http://www.tottenhamhotspurs.tv/forum/ , its not completely finished yet but its usable as a responsive theme.

I do agree with Zach though with price ranges, depending on the theme being done it could be anywhere between $1000 - $3000.

There is a difference between a collapsible skin via CSS/HTML and a responsive design. Responsive designs also alter the amount of data to the devices viewpoint -- you would not want to send the same amount of data to a low-bandwidth device. In most cases you should handle the input of the devices differently. There is plenty of php/javascript that needs to be extended and altered to do this correctly, not just the templating and CSS alone. For example: Using vb's navtab setup does not work well with many of the touch screen devices we tested.

Taking any page and making it collapsible is a pretty simple thing, but this just gives the look of a responsive design and maybe that is all you are looking for. In my department it took 2 guys 1.5 weeks to fully implement/test the code change. That does not count the research and outline of the project.

Anyway, if I am explaining things you already know, forgive me, I was trying to educate others. as a whole, that might read this thread.

@AdamH - Your site looks nice.

Absolutely your 100% correct, although most people don't see it in that manor and just want a theme which works well with mobiles regardless of whether it has a full feature set.

In my opinion spending a couple of weeks developing a solution which is "right" isnt what most people are looking for if they are choosing to stick with VB4 unless its specifically needed or they have the budget to float around , the quick HTML/CSS and template edit solution i have done is still more feature rich and equally as quick than vbulletin's mobile theme or any solution for VB4 , maybe with the exception of Tapatalk but thats not everyones cup of tea.

Lets be honest if we wanted to do it properly rather than spend time and money on it id just move the site to xenforo instead.
