    How do I switch the url to my custom blog url?

    So I simply change this....

    WordPress address (URL):http://site.bigpawdesigns.com/blog
    Blog address (URL):http://site.bigpawdesigns.com/blog

    to this?

    WordPress address (URL):http://site.bigpawdesigns.com/blog
    Blog address (URL):http://www.bigpawblog.com/

    I am assuming that the bigpawblog.com domain is overlaid on bigpawdesigns.com/site

    I'm not positive but I think you will have problems trying to run it that way. You'd be better off changing both to the bigpawblog.com URL. You will also then need to do a move within WordPress as explained here

    There are further references in your database to the existing domain that will need to be changed if you change the install address, even when on the same server and physical file location

    Hmmm
    Could I just point the domain http://www.bigpawblog.com to http://site.bigpawdesigns.com/blog
    and not mess with any of that?
    Or is it more complicated.....
