Recently I have changed out another site over to WordPress (love this script), the site that I changed over was a dynamic, and static website, with some custom scripts that read flat files, all relevant flat files were copied into the wordpress db.
Now that the new WordPress powered site has been running for three days, we have noticed quite a few hits for some of the old flat files, pages and images. This was previously considred and decided that the change in site and structure would be worth a temporary jump in errors. But we did not realize how many of the errors would be coming in from google, msn etc search requests.
What we would like to do is, when the 404 error page is returned to have a few suggested links, something based on the file requested, or the search string that is brought the visitor in from the search engine. Is this possible, or is this already accomplished? Is this something that may return a couple of results from a search query? Any suggestions?
*edit* I think I put this in the wrong topic.
