This plugin redirects 404’s caused by hits on pages that are protected by Groups.
The redirection settings can be adjusted in Settings > Groups 404 :
Visits to protected pages can be redirected to:
- a specific post, or
- the WordPress login
The redirection can also be applied for restricted categories, tags and other taxonomy terms if Groups Restrict Categories is used.
The redirect status code can be selected among:
- Moved Permanently (301)
- Found (302)
- See other (303)
- Temporary Redirect (307)
- Upload or extract the
groups-404-redirectfolder to your site’s
/wp-content/plugins/directory. You can also use the Add new option found in the Plugins menu in WordPress.
- Enable the plugin from the Plugins menu in WordPress.
