With 100,000+ active installations the 404page plugin is the most used plugin to create a customized 404 error page in WordPress. Bringing visitors to your website takes time and effort. Every visitor is important. The default 404 error page of most themes do not provide any information on what to find on your site. A first tme visitor, who does not know you, is left in a dead end and leaves your website. Set up a helpful custom 404 error page to keep him on your site. This handy plugin allows you to easily create your own 404 error page without any effort and it works with almost every theme. Usage Create your custom 404 error page just like any other page using the WordPress Page Editor. Then go to ‘Appearance’ -> ‘404 Error Page’ and select the created page as your custom 404 error page. That’s it! Why use this plugin? Different from other similar plugins the 404page plugin does not create redirects. That’s quite important because a correct code 404 is delivered which tells search engines that the page does not exist and has to be removed from the index. Different from other similar plugins the 404page plugin does not create additional server requests. Requirements The only requirement for this plugin is that you change the Permalink Structure...
