Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Attachment Page 404 Errors

  • Resolved tizz


    This is a relatively new problem to me.
    I used this plugin for a while, but only recently I reported a large number of 404 errors for attachment pages.
    I don’t know if it started after a plugin update (not 1.4.13 anyway, maybe one or two updates before), but most likely it started after I checked the “Redirect to the URL of the post attachments parent” option.
    Also, in the sitemap I checked the option “media” to exclude this post type, and in fact the map isn’t created, but google webmaster tool gives sitemap as the source of not found url
    Do I have to include the media post type in the sitemap then?

    I tried to update the SEO and WP permalink pages, and I have included in the robots.txt Disallow: /attachment/ but the pages are still
    scanned and gives a 404, so it seems that the redirect doesn’t work at all.
    I haven’t tried to select “noindex” under “media” in Titles & Meta because I doubt that it’s the right thing to do.

  • /attachment/ 404 error pages are going on and I don’t know how to stop it.
    Maybe I have to uncheck the redirect, but I’d like that option if it worked.

    Maybe it’s because I’ve changed names to several photographs, I’ll take a look at.

    EDIT: Yes, I didn’t remember that name-changing-thing, but I think that’s the reason. They are real 404s.
