I used this plugin to help track the problem of 404 alert page that kept appearing in the header area of all my WordPress site pages, including in the Admin area.
The part that helped was the IP address that was requesting pages that did not exist and a couple times a hacker did that leaving his IP address.
Well, because this WordPress site is designed for a local business, a person from Russia or China has no value as a visitor to the site so he got blocked and this helped reduce the incessant 404 displays. It did not resolve the issue, it helped and any help against hackers is priceless. 5 Stars :)
I have tried some other 404 plugins. This one is exactly what I needed. Well deserved 5 stars.
Formerly I used “404-error-monitor” (which is very good, too), but the lack of IP and user agent makes it difficult to analyze the 404s.
This plugin provides all necessary information.
The DuckDuckGo !whois query when clicking on an IP is a very friendly detail. (No need to use Google for everything…)
Some minor wishes:
Thanks for the plugin!
Was after a plugin to keep track of 404 logs and this does just that
And I really appreciate the CSV export option.
No compatibility problems with Lite Cache.
I tried also the 404 error monitor but i discovered the 404 error monitor also logged 301 and considered it as 404.
On the other this plugin does the job. It is light for wordpress and it is not going to slower your administration pages load.
The user agent is also logged along with the HTTP referrer and IP address.
