  • Hi, I’m using the 404.php template to deal with a strange Request URI of the form

    Since I’ve not found a way to deal with it with static pages, I rely on 404.php and access directly $_SERVER[‘REQUEST_URI’], if ‘/foo/’ is found I show something, the default 404 otherwise. But in that case I need to send back a 200 OK instead of a 404, do you know a way to do this? May this filter be correct, to be put in functions.php?

    add_filter( 'status_header', 'fxfx_hack_404', 10 );
    function fxfx_hack_404( $c ) {
    	if( strpos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'],'/foo/') !== false ) {
    		$header = '200';
    		$text = get_status_header_desc( $header );
    		$protocol = $_SERVER["SERVER_PROTOCOL"];
    		if ( 'HTTP/1.1' != $protocol && 'HTTP/1.0' != $protocol )
    			$protocol = 'HTTP/1.0';
    		return "$protocol $header $text";
    		return $c;

    Or do you know a cleanr solution to this?
