FT Calendar
Generates false 404 errors (7 posts)

    I've installed this plugin on a multisite.

    It generates false 404 errors at this URL:

    http://domainname.com/wp-content/plugins/ft-calendar/includes/js/jquery.tools.min.js?ver=3.2.1

    I've got my 404s monitored by two error-logging plugins and they both show the same results: false 404s from this FT CALENDAR URL.

    Great plugin otherwise.

    OK, need to clarify.

    The faulty URL is actually:

    https://domainname.com/wp-content/plugins/ft-calendar/includes/js/jquery.tools.min.js?ver=3.2.1

    So anytime ANY page on the site is visited, this URL generates a 404.

    Note the "https". I actually do not use a SSL certificate on my site, so don't understand why FT Calendar is generating a HTTPS.

    Does visiting that URL manually still produce a false 404?

    Thinking the problem I encountered is site-specific, I just started monitoring 404 on another site where I also have this calendar plugin installed

    Yes, it is causing the same problem. It doesn't matter which page/post I view on the site, a 404 error is triggered.

    A 404 error occured at the following url: mydomainname.com/wp-content/plugins/ft-calendar/includes/js/jquery.tools.min.js?ver=3.2.1

    Referrer: http://mydomainname.com/postname/

    What impact would all these false 404s have on my site in terms of SEO? I like this plugin so wouldn't mind all the false 404s as long as they don't have any adverse SEO effect (site visitor experience is not adversely affect in any way, I think).

    Are these(generating the false 404s) a resource hog?

    What plugins are you using to monitor 404s? Also, are these Linux based servers running Apache?

    I don't think this would affect SEO at all... if you can get to the URL then the web crawlers should be able to too.

    The issue with the 404 error is 'cause is misssing the jquery.tools.min.js in the ft-calendar/includes/js/ directory...you need to download the file http://jqueryb.googlecode.com/files/jquery.tools.min.js to that directory

    The Google PR and Bing/Yahoo SEO statics show 404 error with this file, so in my opinion YES affect SEO. I have a IDS in one of my site and show the same missing file on any page

    Nando, have you updated to the latest version? It should be fixed.
