Bad link to pages with error message "it's not their fault"

  • OK well. I only thought that the Google XML Sitemap was causing the problem. It’s still here.

    I gotta get this fixed and if you only have an idea of someone who might be able to help, i’m not above groveling.
    thanks

    Hi Kerch

    We were also suffering this issue. Think I found the cause.

    Take a look at your 404 template file. Someone at some point must have customized the code to send you a notification email each time a 404 registered on the site.

    See this page http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_an_Error_404_Page

    I believe this is the offending code
    #setup a message to be sent to me
    $failuremess = “A user tried to go to $website”
    .$_SERVER[‘REQUEST_URI’].” and received a 404 error. “;
    $failuremess .= “They came from “.$_SERVER[‘HTTP_REFERER’];
    mail($adminemail, “Bad Link To “.$_SERVER[‘REQUEST_URI’],
    $failuremess, “From: $websitename <noreply@$website>”);

    Try commenting out each of these lines as follows (using #) and see if the emails stop.
    #setup a message to be sent to me
    #$failuremess = “A user tried to go to $website”
    #.$_SERVER[‘REQUEST_URI’].” and received a 404 error. “;
    #$failuremess .= “They came from “.$_SERVER[‘HTTP_REFERER’];
    #mail($adminemail, “Bad Link To “.$_SERVER[‘REQUEST_URI’],
    #$failuremess, “From: $websitename <noreply@$website>”);
