    Hey

    when i started my wordpress blog, i created wordpress.mydomain.com for the blog but i then realized that blogg.mydomain.com sounded better so i had it forward there. But since i now changed my permalinks to %posttile% i canĀ“t use them whit blog.mydomain.com they only work whit wordpress.mydomain.com

    Does someone know why there is like this or have any solution to the problem?

    Problem is solved, it was just to copy the .httaccess file to the blog folder and it was working again :)

    Why are people insisting so much on subdomains rather than categories which seem always better (to me of course)?

    Do you mean subfolders? I am not sure how a category fits in this thread especially related to WP.

    Also, subdomains are new domains to google, that is not the case with sub folder installs. It really depends on the site owners strategy

    For the OP, typically people will type in the root domain so I find it better to host the blog on the root domain. Of course, the htaccess can redirect them but I am assuming you have another body of content for your root domain and your blog is a compliment to that content.
