ROA site and ROA blog united at last (oh, and it’s live)

ROAblog and the ROA main site are hosted at two different places: WordPress.com and Google AppEngine. But using a little CSS wizardy, I’ve been able to make them look identical. The WordPress.com site does not allow custom themes, so I had to get a little creative to get the links and nav bar on the WordPress page. I used text widgets in the sidebar and “moved” them into place with CSS. The footer was trickier, as the same technique could not move it out of the sidebar, but those of you who subscribe to this blog via email have already discovered the secret: I created a “sticky” post tagged with “footer” and used CSS to move it to the bottom of the page.

At any rate, you can now enjoy a seamless experience between the site, the app (which is live, by the way!), and the blog.
