    Hi I had my wp>general settings like this

    WordPress address (URL) : http://mydomain.com

    Site address (URL) : http://www.mydomain.com

    A moderator for a plugin/forum told me this after looking at my site :

    ..on the wp general settings you had them (site url and wp url) wrong... they need to agree in usage of http://www... you shouldnt/cant have one with the www and one without... those are two diff domains, especially for logging in (diff cookie domains)... and www is really old and deprecated... so I would make sure both urls do not use the www in there (or if you prefer that both have it)...

    Which is correct ?
    Can they be different or does it cause problems ?
    search,cookies,seo ?

    Thanks .

    Both should be the same.
