We built our own cms already (main news pages) and since that development already cost us thousands, modifying IPB to our liking is cheaper than building our own.

Actually an awesome question that i've never considered before!

Actually an excellent answer

fair enough my company builds unique CMS for the customers last site we did was for a company and the CMS was huge but the whole project only cost them 400 quid :p but fair enough! very valid reason as to why

We would have noticed if any shenanigans had started by now...

Depends on how disruptive it is going to be.

When posting like this,

[quote name='Redmak'post='594417913']stuff[/quote][/CODE]

the last character of the name now gets cropped (in this example it would post: Redma).

Just because it cost the customer 400 quid, does not mean that it was the true cost of the project. Since it sounds like a fixed price endeavour, I am quite curious to take a look at your profit and loss (P&L) sheet.

actually was a loss ... 400... we then had 80 hours to pay, along with things like server costs and electricity ect ect... the cost of the project should of been near 800 to cover everything and make clear cut profit ... we almost broke even about 100-150 short of breaking even...

That's why clients like them. They are buying an outcome. It is also why I prefer Time and Materials engagements.
