I need to modify my Drupal template so my website will be wider. I know very little about Drupal other than adding content to my site. So I am looking on Odesk for a designer to do the job. I got a quote from someone for 40 hours to do it. I cannot imagine why it should take that much time. The job is pretty straightforward. My website is: http://www.wholelifeplaza.com
I want my website to be laid out just like this site: http://www.santosha.com
Basically I just need to have my left column widened, a new column added on the right side, the box on top (where the banner is) to be widened, and the menu on the left to look and function (with popout submenus) as it does on santosha.com.
I don't know if it's a matter of modifying my current template, or having to recreate an entirely new template. Either way, should it take 40 hours to install the new template (with my content intact) ? I'm assuming with drupal you can replace the old version with the new template without having to manually copy and paste all the content back in page by page, right ?)
