Redirection
Redirect all 404's (4 posts)

    Hello,

    It would be great if there was a way to redirect all 404's by default (for example to the home page).

    Great plugin though, it's made my site migrations so easy!

    Thanks,
    Ricky

    I second this. Perhaps we are just missing something but I just want 404s to be directed to a URL of my choosing. We are actually migrating to a new site/domain and selectively redirecting some pages that are important. Most are not worth the time to create individual redirections. Everything else just needs to go to the new site's homepage. Help is much appreciated.

    I think I might have discovered the solution. One needs to essentially create a wildcard redirection and add it to the end of the redirection list. BUT, there are some major caveats here. You can't do a complete wildcard because then you would never be able to login again. Surely somebody else has a slick solution for this?

    The solution we found was to use the Plugin 404 Redirection http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/404-redirection/ in addition, we've found it works well.

    Any thoughts as to the SEO implications?

    What solution did you end up using?
