    Hi Guys,

    I changed my blog URL from xyz.com/ to xyz.com/blog...

    The page loads fine on xyz.com/blog and when I mouseover the links all the links correctly point to xyz.com/blog but when I click on any of the links it takes me back to the old URL i.e. xyz.com

    For example.. when I mouse over a URL I see..

    xyz.com/blog/article.html but then I click on it, it takes me to xyz.com/article.html.

    All the internal links have same behavior..

    Plz help..

    Go to your permalinks settings, and click update, and then try viewing your site.

    Issue resolved by editing .htaccess

    I should have looked into earlier.. but I thought just updating the permalinks from the admin was enough.. it clearly wasnt enough when the permissions are not set to write.

    Thanks for trying to help guys.
