WordPress is executing automatic 301 redirects for a URL that I deleted. I want the URL to 404. It appears that the redirect is "guessing", and redirecting to similar slugs. I was able to do this with other pages. As far as I know, I am not running any 301 software.
How can I stop this from happening? Please be thorough in your explanation - I am a noob. Is there a plugin to stop this, or will I need to edit files?
