    I planned to, never got round to it though, as I tend to sort out 404 errors or have a redirect in place.

    Had a play with one this morning. Just a bit of fun as I'd probably get my arse sued if I actually tried to use it!

    Probably worth noting that some CMS systems need a custom 404 error page or missing pages get returned to the home page. Sniffer bots often use this test to see if your website is CMS based or not and then can mark you out as 'hacker food'. Not the case will all CMS systems but worth checking out.

    Haha! Awesome! I might have to look into this for websites in the future.

    Thanks for the heads up. I think I just have a standard WP 404 page, but I'll look into it to be sure.

    That's cool if WP come with one 'out of the box' :icon_smile: just as long as you have something there and not a straight redirect.
