Hi. I have a fully-functional Drupal 7 template, that need some customisation as below:
1. adding a news module in the front page, so that newest 3/4 items are displayed with a link to the news archive. the template already has a fully functional user forum, blog, user comments etc. in the sidebars in the front page.
2. right now all the pages, except the main page does not have any sidebar., so i want a left sidebar too with subnavigation, and links to news module, blog posts, user forum, articles, and user login. I will explain this in detail.
3. some changes in the font color and background color of the images (CSS manipulation).
4. the automatic "slider" in the header section does not change image. it remains static at the first image, although this functionality is available in the template ( i m not able to figure out where i m going wrong). this needs to be fixed.
most imp. of all.. a static HTML page which is currently displayed as the website home page must remain there, until these customisations are over.. i do not want the users to "see" the website as it is being modified.
the template is already installed in the website and fully functional except the above points. no drupal installation required. access to the webserver will be provided.
pls mention how much time will be required by you for this (this will be one of the main deciding factors for the winning bid.)
