Royal Flusher's Daily Vegas Pic - July 13, 2019 - 2.0

Exciting news! Royal Flusher Vegas has gotten a makeover!

Jimmy Poon has been working extremely hard behind the scenes, cobbling up a whole new set of what he calls 'code' for the blog.

And I've been super busy designing a new logo, and looking at swatches of computer screen fabric, to decorate.

I'm really happy with how this has turned out. Like Steve Wynn in days gone by, we've got 'easy navigation... and we're glad you're here'.

The biggest change is seen on the desktop version of the site - mobile users won't see too much difference on the main page, save the logo, but the trip report pages will look a bit different.

The desktop site feels more open and airy, and less cramped, and purple has been relegated to an accent color, rather than having everything on the page swathed in a huge purple Barney-like background.

We have the ability to put content cards up on the main page for any sort of content - for example, when there is a trip report on, we can stuff cards for the latest few posts right at the top for that - err - easy navigation.

There's still a few more things I have to yell at Jimmy Poon about tweaks we have to make, but hopefully, we're most of the way there.

If you see anything not working right, don't blame me, blame Jimmy Poon - but tell me about it on twitter or facebook or something.

So that's what we've been up to. And there's more... at long last, a trip to Vegas is in the planning stages. I'll be writing about that soon.

I've written as Royal Flusher on the internets in one form or another for many years, but this here blog is about to reach it's 10th anniversary - I kicked it off in August of 2009. Seems hard to believe, but I haven't lost my fascination with all things Las Vegas.

Here's to the next decade. We're just getting started!

    1. The design is tip top and spot on, as they say up North. Good choice for the purple Accent Grave rather than dominant color. Well done to you both for the upgrade, and I anticipate the newest and most thrilling adventure reports!
