2017 was our biggest year yet. Dozens of new templates and customization options were added to give you even more control over your website’s design and layout. With these updates, it’s easier than ever before to build a modern, mobile-ready website for your music!
If you missed any of the updates, not to worry. Here's a look back at all the new features that were released this year:
Maybe our biggest design update of the year: you can now add sections to your website! A section is a full-width container for your features. Once you add sections, you can use the built-in design controls to customize them.
Within a section, you can have as many features as you’d like. You can reorder sections on your page, moving them up or down, and use them to visually separate content on the page to create a striking, modern look! Find out more

Tools to give you more control over your design
You can now zoom in and out on header images, as well as set a focal point to make sure that the most important part of the image displays nicely on any mobile device!
We added the ability to set the slide timing, transition timing, and the type of transition you’d like for your header slideshows. You can set your slides to move fast, medium, or slow. Then adjust the slide effect to fade, slide left, or slide right!
You can now apply image filters to your header images! These filters can help make your images blend in better with your theme, resulting in a more professional looking end result. Plus, you don't have to use photo editing software like Photoshop to do it.
We rolled out some small but mighty typography improvements in 2017. Size options were replaced with heading styles, and new line-height options were added. Plus, most typefaces now include bold and italic styles!
You can now upload a custom font for your site title, your feature titles, the page names in your menu, and your content text!
We cleaned up a lot of the code needed to run uploads, and made sure that the uploader works better than ever before across all web browsers. So any time you add an image, a song, or a file to your website, it’s be speedier than ever!

Last but not least, to start the year we added increased security by adding secure HTTPS to all Bandzoogle websites. This not only protects your data, but helps with your SEO as well. See the details
