I've run a search and found a little help from some similar issues posted previously, but I still have a question based on what I have found so far. After installing, no theme styling is used to format the blog. My setup uses the directory http://www.website.net/blog/, but I have a subdomain set as http://blog.website.net/.
After using the information referenced at http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/site-url/ I've determined that if I change everything to the homepage URL (i.e. http://www.website.net/blog/), all works fine. If I change everything to use the subdomain as I installed it, the themes don't work.
My question is am I missing a setting somewhere, or is this a restriction in how WordPress works?
Thanks in advance for any help.
