Bandzoogle - Band Websites That Work
We're happy to say that the custom style editor will be launching next week! The Zoogler team is looking forward to the cool sites you'll build with it!
To whet your appetite, here are some of our favourites from the beta testers. All of these sites were built right in our point and click editor without having to write any code!
3 COLUMNS!!!!! Very excited. Thanks BZ
Awesome! Appetite whetted!Great Job,Beth

Nice can't wait I just redid my site but with the new Custom style editor I will not mind doing it over again I live for this thanks... God Bless the BZ Teamers.....
Will you be able to edit the individual page titles of your site in the site promotion section?
This will really help in search terms for individual pages attracting different clients/fans!
My Google account HTML recommended that I do this for both my sites.
Finally - this is very exciting news! Can't wait to try it out! Thanks Bandzoogle!
Awesome! Been waiting for this - gonna launch new music with your a revamped website ... life is good!
This is great! My new CD is coming out in a few weeks and a revamped website appearing the same time as the release will be awesome!!!!! Thank you! You guys are awesome.
Too Cool! Can't wait to play!!
AWESOME. I can't wait for this....just signed up here!
Nice and sick!... Keep it up
Im glad this is coming next week, but when? This was great timing because I was going to leave bandzoogle.com! I think Im going to wet my pants lol.
This is so awesome!
Will be able to create our own an image link
This is great! Looks like Im going to be spending some hours next week doing some redesign. Im stoked!
Yes, yes... oh no, no. There aren't enough hours in my day to keep up with you guys! Seriously, looking forward to the possibilities. Amazing work BZ!
Nice!!! Can't wait.
Awesome! Sounds Good!
dude - major high fives all around the zoogle team! TEN IS WHEN!!
that should be fun,,does anyone know how to use a pic i have as the background of my site? im a lil loss email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
This option is for the premium members only right?
cant wait!!! this will make this place perfect!
Thank you so much! I've been waiting for this!
Cool... I will make another account with you Zoogler!
This is why I tell EVERYONE ABOUT YOU!!!! Bandzoogle ROCKS!!! Thanks so much!
^ amen to that! Band Zoogle... seriously why does facebook myspace and twitter even exist now? LOL
Looks great! Please please tell me there will be a feature that allows you to duplicate pages?????
WilliamsBoy - We're still ironing out those details but we'll post more info when we launch it next week.
Craig - Not in the new custom template feature, however, this is something on our suggestions list to look into for a future update.
I know I'm late, but I must say, this is AWESOME. My partner was just telling me the other day she likes the templates, but would love to be able to customize (while still using Bandzoogle) for the revamp of the site. So Glad to hear this is happening.
It would be great if this feature is available for free to tenured members...
Wow, nice work! Can't wait for this to launch. I have so many ideas, but it's hard to execute them with just templates. So this will be great.
YES! I wanna say thanks!
Has this editor been launched yet? would love to start using it, where can you find it in the account hub? x
Patch - We will be launching this later in the week. Stay tuned to the blog for more info.
Drooling on my shoe. AWESOME!!!!
still waiting. is there a release date?
AHHHHHHH MAN EVERYTIME I LOG INTO MY BANDZOOGLE HOME, THERE'S ALWAYS SOME GREAT NEWS!!! CANT WAIT FOR THIS TO LAUNCH!
When is this actually launching? It's "next week" now!
no fingernails left... waiting waiting.
I know, I'm ready too...been ready for months.
YEAH WE NEED THIS NOW
IT'S OBVIOUSLY DONE
I DON'T THINK IT'S FAIR AT ALL THAT PEOPLE GOT TO USE IT AND OTHERS ARE STILL WAITING
ALL THESE PROMO TOOLS ARE WORTH NOTHING IF OUR SITES LOOK LIKE CLOWNS BUILT EM
Hi there. I just wanted to make a technical point, since I was in the computer field.
Software designers have to have testers test out programs before they release it. It's called BETA TESTING. That way they can fix any bugs before they release. If not, people get really ticked when they find the bugs themselves.
Hope this helps, so you're not too upset with the BZ. I'm waiting too. It'll be awesome when it does get released.
YEAH WE NEED THIS NOW IT'S OBVIOUSLY DONEI DON'T THINK IT'S FAIR AT ALL THAT PEOPLE GOT TO USE IT AND OTHERS ARE STILL WAITINGALL THESE PROMO TOOLS ARE WORTH NOTHING IF OUR SITES LOOK LIKE CLOWNS BUILT EM
I DON'T CARE WHAT SOFTWARE PEOPLE DO
THIS ISN'T A SOFTWARE SITE
I'VE BEEN WITH THIS FOR 2 YEARS THIS IS WAY OVERDUE
I DON'T CARE
Amen, bubba...Who cares what shade of Fuchsia your web site is, its all about the content...and don't go nosing around my website for content, it doesn't have anything good...Mongo...
I'm gonna keep checking every ten minutes...I don't care!!!
When is it coming we have promised fans and visitors a new site.
rabble rabble style editor launch rabble rabble
Custom style editor launching next week! HELLO NEXT WEEK IS HERE!
I keep on checking too...maybe it was mentioned too soon? I know you don't want to release bugs, but what about real release date instead of "next week" or "keep on checking, we're really really really close this time we promise"...how about just "it'll be released on (insert day)", so we don't keep on checking for no reason.
I have updates to make on my page, but I'm now in a holding pattern until the designer is in place.
Please hurry....I haven't been this excited about the service since I joined up.
Agreed. i just signed up and pretty much have been on hold since I want to wait for the custom design interface to go live. No use setting up a website just to change it.
Please give us an update as to what day this week, if at all!
Even if you tell me this Friday...I'm still gonna check every Ten Minutes...I don't care!
I hope you guys are joking....otherwise I might have to send some Fembots, to take your minds off of it.Geeze...
People need to chill out! I too am anxiously awaiting this release, as are most all Zooglers I'm sure. But would you rather have it available WITH bugs NOW, or in a couple days WITHOUT bugs?I'm willing to bet GOOD money right now that the biggest complainers that is is now "next week" will be the first ones complaining about 1) bugs, 2) they don't understand how to use the new system, 3) whatever else there is to whine about...Relax, have faith in the BZ crew, and wait a few more days. Yeah, I'd like to know when exactly it'll be ready for us to use, but unless it goes longer than "this week" then I think we don't have much to complain about. And I too have updates waiting for the new system, and am holding off doing them until I can do it all at once...My $0.02 worth...
ornament is right. im excited for this update as much as everyone but let the programmers finish lol! i think you should just do what im doing... MAKE MUSIC!!!!!111ONEONEONE that way when the custom style editor comes, you've got stacks of new joints to put up for your lovely fans.
so excited! and glad I've stayed with bandzoogle all these years!
Next week...YA!Wait! I remembers last year when I asked about this and was told "It will be out in a few weeks".....so, "Next Week" must mean NEXT WEEK, just not sure which NEXT WEEK! I will be happy when it comes out and will be very thanksful, I am sure BZ must understand that many members have frustrations in the mean time... I know they will bring it out but it would be nice to have a realese date instead of "Soon" or "Check Back"
Ok....I am so waiting on this custom style editor. Even though I just started setting up my website two days ago, I'm just as anxious!! I can see spending many hours playing with the features.
Finally we can make use of all that extra space.
Sinima man your soundclick design is the JOINT man! you got quite a name for yourself already cant wait to see what you pull out this year man!
I can feel it...it's gonna happen today....
I'M SO READY
You got a crystal ball?
If you cant beat em, Join em...Go whatever it is...Whoo Hoo..Mongo...
when does it start?
No date on this yet?
man i can't wait for this, im checking every five minutes. i dreamed about it last night haha
tap feet, twitch a bit.
How much longer?
tap feet, twitch a bit more.
Not long now you say?
hoping its today...
It's awesome that we're going to get this function but I think everyone should just chill.BZ will have it out as soon as it's ready...
I think it's gonna be next week.......
Im really starting to dislike bandzoogle I wish they would of said later of the week and I wouldnt of got to runinng my mouth to fans and customers
Quit your yappin! if your fans are real fans... they wont care what your layout looks like. you should seriously realise that bandzoogle is saving you SO much time and money. Just have some patients, it'll be up soon.

So true but I can just switch to squarespace and others but Im trying to be loyal and my fans and customers wont care but it's bad business to open your my mouth and it dosent happen. So does that respond to you all. Not being an ass hole cause I love the site and I can wait just trying relaunch site with new online store and ready to get sells--since I shut the other down due to being told new custom style editor next week so I shut down site to convert on this one. But anyway all I can do is wait right? I know so why did you uys respond? Thanks for reaching out!
Also bandzoogle knows I love them or I would of been left just rushing stacy and chris-- and I do aplogize just cant wait lol
Same here guys- Still waiting, We love you all though, BZ went from hosting my music page to hosting my film production companies page-wahoo!! lol thanks BZ cant wait to play with the new design

-law enforcement face off- thats ok then. i wont have to arrest you for speaking ill of bandzoogle.
... "Next Week" must mean NEXT WEEK, just not sure which NEXT WEEK!
I was just thinking the same thing. Oh you BZ folks are tricksy!
Looking forward to it. Has this launched yet?
I believe it has! In beta form....or maybe I had it all along!>!?!
AND CHECKING AGAIN
Down to checking every hour now instead of ten minutes, wondering if there is anything that they can tell us at this point seeing that it's late in the week now. At least an official update please?
To another point, I bet BZ hasn't had this many hits on their portal in a while! It seems that the community is really begging for this to happen. I know it's a process, but can you be more transparent about the time line? Today, Friday, Saturday?
Just checkin too
jus checking i guess
iTS UP FOR ME!!!
The custom designer beta has been opened to everyone; you'll find the option in the site style chooser in the Design & Options section. Note that we are still refining the interface and design options. It is stable to use for your live site if you choose. We'll post an official launch message ASAP.
OMG!!!! It's Here!!!! ::melting inside:: Clearly I won't be getting any sleep tonight...
SWEET MOTHER OF HOLY JESUS AND FRUT CAKES, WE ARE ALL HAPPIER THAN GEORGE BUSH WHEN HIS TERM FINISHED LOL, THANKS BZ!!!!
CANT WAIT TO GO CRAZY WITH THIS!!!
I wonder just how many Zooglers won't be sleeping! I've just put some coffee on.....
YES YES YES YES YES
WE ALL NEEDED THIS AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT BZ NEEDS TO PASS UP EVERY WEB BUILDER IN THE INDUSTRY
THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HARD WORK GUYS
First of all....WHAT IS THIS?? ohhhh man....here we go again....I have been waiting a Loooonnnngggg time for this like everyone else and all you can give us is a simple editing interface? Which is not very easy to use, nor is it very practical. I do hope that when you decide to release the final version(months from now?) it will be much better then this. I have worked with way better interfaces and this one dose not stack up. I know you are working hard on this aspect of your service, but if you do not know how to make an easy free blank page interface then please hire someone who dose and stop the nonsense already. I would have done that for my customers if I was the owner as it is only fair to the people who pay good money each month during this tough economy. Also, to all of you who are ready to fire back at this post, don't bother as I am just saying what many others want to say but wont.
Jessie, this is still in beta, and it is the first version of the editor. Clearly, like all aspects of our service, it will continue to improve.
In terms of it not being useful; we've already seen some amazing looking sites built with it, without adding a single line of CSS code.
With customer feedback, we'll implement new versions of the editor. Our goal was to get something simple and usable, that integrates with our current template system. Feel free to share your opinions about what you want to see added in the new "custom template" forum. We are listening.
Lay Off They're Backs!!! At LEast We Now Have Something To Edit.. Its Wayy Better Then Nothing!!!! You Dont Like It.. LEAVE!!! jessietaylor wrote:
HOLY S**T! This thing is almost better than pie!
Sounds so good to hearWhat does next week mean? Can't wait to see if it is worth the wait.
Excellent news Chris - I'm gonna have a play!
Hi, could some one maybe tell me how to create a semi transparent image?
Photoshop if you have it.
Cool thank's figured it out.
This is really helpful and cool! Here's what I've done so far - www.kelseyjillette.com - the adjustments are pretty subtle but I think they make it much better. My only suggestion at this point would be a slider for making images more or less transparent. Thanks bandzoogle!
Here's my first stab at it. If anyone likes or dislikes anything, let me know. So far I'm liking this a lot. Now I have to work on some photoshop stuff for the headers, but it's getting there! Thanks BZ!
Looks GREAT! I love ur Myspace and Facebook cans. Good work!

Is there a way to get three coloms?
OK going on a month since you announced custom style editor launching, how's that going? Noticed you updated the Bandzoogle home page, looks nice.
HI - they are actually working on that now - but in the mean time, you can make one of your "Features" into a 2 column display, which creates three columns (of course, you are limited to text and graphics)...

I'll play around with that then, THANKS!
MaryT - It is available now. You can find the Custom Style Editor in the Design & Options tab by clicking Change Site Style, then Custom Styles.
How do you do the columns in the Custome Style editor??? Please help
