Ballpark Cost For Style Updating?

Post by Mulsiphix »

I see several folks with a signature offering the service of updating styles. While styles do range in size and complexity, can anyone tell me what a reasonable price range for an update would be?

Service 1
If I wanted to request that Arty's Basic (a v3.2.9 style), be updated to v3.3?


Service 2
If I wanted to have a light theme converted to a dark theme? No graphics involved, just stylesheet-fu.

Some stylists do it for free, as it provides a link back to there forum. You are looking at Possibly an hours work to update ~ £25. Dark style. ~ days work ~ £100.
There are some options: https://www.colorizeit.com/styles/phpbb ... ilver.html

Allows/use to I’m not sure any more, for you to upload your own styles.

Another option is to use it as a learning curve and do it yourself - that way it will not cost anything!

If you have a specific author, Arty for instance, you should contact him and ask. If it’s a general enquiry for style authors to quote you need to post in the Wanted! forum. Even in the Wanted! forum monetary discussions are kept to PM and email.

FWIW - The basic style is already at 3.3.

This is extremely useful information. I'm not quite in the market yet but I totally need a Dark version of Basic. I could do it myself, but I just don't have the time. Meanwhile, I'm pretty unhappy with what DarkReader does to the style, although it is still better than the normal version (bright colors, eyestrain wise). Thank you so much for the information Steve ;)
