    The instructions suggested you can redirect from any page not found to anothe URL. Can’t see how to do this. I have Posts that are outdated and should be deleted, how do I have a generic rule that if a page is not found, the user is redirected to the home page?

    You should not have a generic rule for that. If you have pages that have moved then you should redirect them to the new location. If you wish to remove a post then you can use a 410 error.

    Thank you for the quick response but I don’t see anything about a 410 error. I have posts that talk about upcoming events at our church. When the events are over I delete the post. I could also unpublish them but if someone still goes there from a email link, I would like to redirect them to the home page. Can this be done with your plugin?

    Sure, you can create a redirect for each post you want to redirect.

    Redirecting to the home page doesn’t seem very useful though. Would leaving them as-is and having a historical record not be better?
