    i just moved my site blogger to wordpress and every thing was fine. but i found that in the url bar if i enter some thing at the end of the url then i will get an 404 error
    eg.
    http://www.gadgetsmaniac4u.com/2013/03/can-apple-iphone6-handle-samsung-galaxy-s4.html
    will work fine but
    http://www.gadgetsmaniac4u.com/2013/03/can-apple-iphone6-handle-samsung-galaxy-s4.html?m=1

    leads to a 404 error. But ?m=0 and ?m=1 is for mobile view in blogger. so it is causing around 414 errors in Google Webmaster crawler. i just want to know how can i fix this.

    i just want to trim every thing after .html in my url. is there any way from which i can do this. or any redirecting script????

    Please help me..

    Well, in wordpress, that HTML file doesn't actually exist. It's permalinked for SEO.

    As such, you can't pass arguments or parameters to it...because it doesn't really exist. So if you do, wordpress says: "Nope, don't know what that page is" and gives you a 404.

    Take a look at this article. Without being on the system, I don't know which course of action to reccomend...so take a look here:

    Best of luck!
