How to delete the pages in your website account

If you’d like to restart your music website, remove your pages until you have one page left - either a Home page or another main page. Pages on your website can be added or removed at any time. To remove pages from your website, follow these steps:

Warning: removing pages from your website also removes the content of that page. Certain features, like your ‘Selling Tools’ and ‘Image’ feature, store your uploaded content for later use. However, deleting pages from your website will remove all text, content styling, and data.

  1. From your ‘Edit Content’ control panel, click ‘Pages’
  2. Next to the page you’d like to remove, click on the pencil icon
  3. In your ‘Page options,’ scroll to the bottom and click ‘Delete Page’
  4. On the pop-up panel, click ‘Delete Page’ to confirm

While you aren’t able to remove all pages from your Bandzoogle website, you can follow the steps above to continue removing pages from your website until you are left with one page.

From there, start adding the pages you want for your new website. To learn how many pages are available for your plan, view the ‘Bandzoogle Pricing’ Help article.

Note: if you would like to start over completely, please contact our customer support team to delete your account so you can sign up for a brand new one with the same address.

How to put your website under construction

While you’re rebuilding your website, you may want to place your pages under construction. To do that, use the Maintenance mode option as follows:

  1. From the ‘Edit Content’ tab, click ‘Pages’
  2. Select ‘Site-wide settings’ below your list of pages
  3. Select ‘Maintenance Mode’
  4. Click the toggle beside ‘Set site to maintenance mode’

The Maintenance Mode page will then appear for anyone visiting your website. To learn more about Maintenance Mode, including how to edit the design, please see ‘Putting Your Website in Maintenance Mode.’

How to change your website name

You can change your website name at any time in your ‘Edit Theme’ control panel and your ‘Site-wide settings.’

To change the name that’s seen in your website design, follow these steps:

  1. From the ‘Edit Theme’ control panel, scroll to the ‘Title/Logo’ options in the theme editor
  2. In the ‘Site title’ field, edit the text for your new website name
  3. Click ‘Save’

To change your website name in your settings, follow these steps:

  1. From the ‘Edit Content’ tab, click ‘Pages’ on the left side of the screen
  2. Select ‘Site-Wide settings’ below the list of pages
  3. Under the ‘Site profile’ tab, update the ‘project name’ field
    • The name indicated here will display in the browser tab at the top of the screen when your site is loaded, and within your Bandzoogle account as the username in the drop-down menu next to the ‘View site’ button. It is also visible when you post a comment in the ‘Community’ tab.
  4. Click ‘Save’

If you need to change your domain name, please read the ‘Changing and Removing Domains' Help article.

How to change your template

If you plan to redesign your website, you can give it a new look without losing your website content.

To change your template, follow these steps:

  1. From your website editor, click on the ‘Edit Theme’ control panel
  2. From the ‘Edit Theme’ tab, click ‘View themes’ at the top of your theme panel options. You’ll be able to view ‘All themes,’ themes you’ve already tried in ‘Your themes,’ or choose from one of the categories listed on the left
  3. Once you’ve browsed the theme options, hover over a theme variation, then select ‘Try theme’ or ‘See variations’
  4. When ‘Try theme’ is selected, it will take you back to your ‘Edit Theme’ options and you’ll be previewing the theme. To apply the theme to your website, click ‘Save.’ To return to your previous theme, click ‘Cancel’
