The Bandzoogle ‘Nocturne’ template features a floating left-justified menu - when your site loads, this overlaps your homepage header image. When visitors scroll down to view content, it stays in place, while the content scrolls to the right.


  • 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.


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: Sombre, Neutral, Playful, Elegant
  • Blank template option: Yes
