Adding Subdomain in Wordpress

Hi

In Wordpress, I'd like to add a subdomain that looks like this:

mydomain.com/subdomain

Currently when I add a subdomain it looks like this:

subdomain.mydomain.com

What do I do? Add a folder??

mydomain.com/subdomain

This is a subdirectory, not a subdomain.

subdomain.mydomain.com

This is a subdomain.

Can you explain what you are trying to do?

Thanks for clearing that up. I was trying to tack on specific product information that customers could get to directly rather than going to the home page and clicking on a link.

You could either create Pages or Categories and then posts within the Categories.  I would lean towards categories as it gives you a more natural navigational hierarchy:

domain.com/products/cool-widget/

Where "products" is the category and "cool-widget" is the post.

If you plan on moving towards e-commerce or reviews, you would probably want to invest the effort in making a Custom Post Type to get enhanced flexibility with the taxonomy.
