I'm using a custom query in my homepage to show only one category instead of showing all the categories. I have the correct control of the pagination and I'm also showing to total number of pages and the current page with the PageNavi plugin.
The problem is that, for Worpdress, i have unlimited pages. I mean, If I write manually the URL of the page 200 (mywebsite.com/page/200) i can visit that page although it doesn't contain any post.
How can I tell to WordPress that this page must be a 404 error page instead of the valid page it is interpreting?
The same pagination method implemented directly in a category works fine (for example in mywebsite.com/category/category-name/page/200 displays a 404 error), I don't understand why it's not working on my homepage.
Thanks in advance!!
