4realz Gets a Makeover…

RCG-ideaInspired by my desire to redo the RCG theme, I recently gave 4realz.net a makeover… If you want to see what I did and why, check out my post on Rain City Guide:

And no doubt about it, I’d love to hear your thoughts on the redesign!

  1. Hey Dustin…lookin’ good! I agree with your wife. The new design is easier on the eyes, has a little more white sapce, and makes it easier to find things.

    I’d be curious to see how your Facebook Connect panel would do on a different page. While fewer people would see it, perhaps they would have enough reason by then to feel compelled. Just a thought. It seems the “Recent Comments” is of more interest, at first. I think you suggested you might make that change. Could be interesting!

    The new colors are a little colder, but look serious and official.

    Looks good!

    1. Great idea… I’m not ready to remove the FB Connect from the sidepanel but I like the idea of bringing the comments above it… done!

  2. Only cuz you asked (sorta), here are my thoughts on the redesign:

    I think I liked the old header better. But the navigation bar on this one is totally awesome and functional.
    I like the “Recent Comments” displayed on the right sidebar.
    I totally like the threaded comments feature!

    Anyway, just a few things I took notice on and thought I’d share… All in all, great redesign!

    1. threaded comments are fun, huh? 😉 Thanks for the feedback!

  3. Love it. Like a well staged home, you get a sense of spaciousness.

    1. You rock! 😉 Really liking the closing by the way. It’s become a great place to head when I’m looking for some interesting real estate news…

  4. Dustin, it really looks great!!! Good job with the new look

    1. Thanks! The feedback has been pretty good so far, so I’m thinking it’s a good change so far! 😉

  5. I like the redesign. Makes scanning the site easier imo. You have some wasted space in the left hand column when you are viewing a post. Any chance you could move one of the columns over from the right side?

    1. Great call on the “right panel”. I had two ads up there, but earlier today, they stopped showing and it almost definitely had something to do with an upgrade to a flash plugin. I’m gonna have to look into that!

  6. Congratulations on the website redesign. It looks much easier to scan key content and pleasant to the eye. Another good move. Kudos Dustin!
