Thanks for this great plugin.
I wanted to report to things… a feature suggestion, and what appears to be a bug.
First the bug:
Under some circumstances I get the error,
Fatal error: Function name must be a string in /home/jonathan/public_html/site/wp-content/plugins/permalink-finder/permalink-finder.php on line 478
I was getting this error in the back-end when I had
AskApache Google 404 plugin activated at the same time as

Please advise how I can help you with resolving this.
I am wondering if there is a way to display a message above the post content when an article has been found via a Permalink Finder redirect? What I am thinking is this… when someone plugs in a bad URL and they end up on a page different from the one they were hoping for, I’d like them to know first WHY they are seeing a different page, and second HOW they can perhaps get to the page they wanted.
It would be nice to be able to display a message (customisable by the Admin) such as,
“The link or address you used didn’t match any on this site. You have arrived at this page through automatic redirection based on our best guess of what you were looking for.
Not the page you were looking for?
Here are some alternatives:
Or perhaps try doing a search:
Then they would see a Admin defined number of alternative links, and there would be a search box. I imagine this appearing above the post content of the page they are redirected to. Of course, it would be Admin optional as to whether or not this feature is activated.
