The Bandzoogle ‘Echo’ template features a narrow content area. The header image is also reflected as the background of the site - hence the name ‘Echo!’

Notes:

  • Your template can be changed at any time without affecting the site content. You can also switch back to your previous template (with all saved customizations) through the ‘My Themes’ tab of the Template chooser.
  • All of our templates are mobile responsive, so they scale to the size of the device used to view the site. All features work seamlessly on mobile as well.
  • To learn more about customization terms and options please view the ‘Template Customization Key’ Help article.
