Permalink Validator Plugin does not return an actual 404 (3 posts)

    I'm using the permalink validator: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/permalink-validator/ which is a great plugin and solved most of my issues, BUT, the "404" it shows you when you request a /?p=72 is not serving a 404 header and is instead serving a 200 OK header - anyone know how to make it show a true 404?

    I cant speak to the plugin, but I can say that "?p=x" shouldnt return a 404 under any circumstances, since that the default NON-permalink way of getting a post number.

    Even with nice permalinks, that link ought to function and NOT return a 404.

    Note that it works as expected :

    If using IIS then it is impossible to send a 404 when using PHP. Apparently this can only be one by ASP pages.
