The Bandzoogle ‘Prismatic’ template features a full-page header image with a colorful (or muted) overlay. This keeps your main image in focus as visitors scroll through your content.

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.

Variations

Most Bandzoogle templates offer a few variations of the base template. These variations include preset colors and fonts to get you started with the template. Some themes also allow you to start with a blank theme. If the blank theme option is selected, no stock header image, colors, or fonts will be pre-loaded.

  • 4 styles: Neutral, Sombre, Playful, Elegant
  • Blank template option: No

Animation

Some Bandzoogle templates load with a bit of movement. This may be something like the header title floating in, or the title size decreasing as you scroll.

  • Template animations: As the visitor scrolls, your main title fades up and sticks to the top left corner of the site and the content scrolls over the header image.
  • Animation on loading: Header image fades in smoothly and slides your menu into place as the website loads.

Header

The header image is the photo or video that displays at the top of your website. Your header image is the first thing a visitor sees when they load your website, so it’s important to make it stand out. Each Bandzoogle template offers different header sizes and options.

  • Header image display: Full page background
  • Header image filters: No
  • Header on home page only (default): Only on Variation A. Variation B and C have inner page background images.

  • Option to remove header image: No
  • Header image shape/position options: None

Title/Logo

Your band or artist name should display prominently on your website. You can use our title text option or upload a logo if you’ve got one already designed. You can also choose ‘None’ to go without a title/logo altogether.

Prismatic offers two titles. The first is the ‘centered title’ when the page loads. The second is the ‘corner title’ when you scroll down the page.

  • Site title font color customization: Yes
  • Size of centered title: Use the slider to adjust the ‘centered’ title.

Call-to-action Header (CTA)

A call-to-action (CTA) is the primary action you’d like visitors to take once they load your site. This can be something like ‘Buy my album’ or ‘Sign up to my mailing list’. The key is to place it high on the page to direct fans to a specific action. Most of our themes place the CTA overtop of the header image.

  • Call-to-Action header: No
