Someone asked me to make a mobile version of their website.
I did not make their website and I hate dealing with other peoples code, especially if it isn’t commented up and well written (I do not know if it is or isn’t… I have not looked yet…).
What do you do in such situations. Do you tell the client to take a hike?
Do you impose a rule that you only fix up or work on websites that you have built?
Because this is not the first time.
I always check the code first but more often than not have to recommend a full redevelopment, usually it’s quicker (and therefore cheaper) just to start from scratch rather than trying to unravel the mess someone else made.
