    Should I learn modifying VBulletin myself or use service of website like fiverr ?

    Hey, I am currently studying web development and I have an idea for a forum based website, I akm not sure whether it is worth it to spend $250 on purchasing the license and then spending months on modifying it. Should I just use service of website like fiverr to get the site built?

    How nlong does it take to learn how to modify vbulletin?

    Learning to work with vBulletin isn't that hard if you are a visual / hands on learner. Everyone learns differently, but I strongly recommend watching some youtube videos to aid you in the set up process such as editing the config.php file.

    Overall it really isn't hard if you take the time to learn what you are wanting to do with it. Adding styles, plugins and stuff requires going into the root folder in your file via your hosting panel. So again watch some youtube videos and get a feel on what you want to do with vBulletin.

    If you want to change a design of your style, or create your own, than all you need is some HTML/CSS knowledge and you can pretty much do everything :)

    For modifying vbulletin, basicly you should learn php and css.Its not difficult but it can be complicated.Some change in php codes can crate exploits.It can be dangerous.
    I suggest you paid services.Its not expensive.
