Support » Plugin: 404page - your smart custom 404 error page » Not compatible with MonsterInsights

  • The extremely popular plugin Google Analytics by MonsterInsights checks if is_404() is true and updates the pagepath sent to Analytics to be a URL starting with 404.html.

    With this plugin activated, is_404 return false in its code and all custom 404 tracking is lost.

    That’s what the option “Force 404 error after loading page” is made for. Please activate it and try if this does the trick.

    So I’ve read the information + watched the video about what that option provides.

    Both specifically *recommend* having this option off, because it may cause issues with themes / plugins, but don’t give examples.

    In cases like this, *not* enabling this option causes issues with one of the most popular plugins available in WordPress (3+ million installs). You give another example in your documentation about it breaking iThemes Security if left off.

    Perhaps you could give some examples of what problems may occur when it is *on*, given these seem less likely / important? I understand having it off by default but it seems the recommendation should be to turn it on wherever possible (to be compatible with other plugins like this), as oppose to keeping it off wherever possible.
