  • Does wordpress version 3.0.1 automatically fix and redirect 404’s or do I need to install a plugin for this?

  • WordPress does not automatically redirect 404s.

    A lot of WordPress themes handle 404s well from a user standpoint by displaying the theme with a helpful message in the content area. However, from an SEO standpoint, it is still a 404.

    A great plugin for tracking and redirecting 404 errors is Redirection: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/redirection/.

    I Strongly agree with @woodent. Redirection is essentially routine for our installs these days. You can always create a 404 page template containing a quick sitemap & blog search or modify your current during your next Installation. [Link removed – this is not an advertising forum.]
