Please take a look at the release notes.

Create your custom 404 Page as a normal WordPress Page using the full power of WordPress. You can use a Custom Page Template or Custom Fields, you can set a Featured Image - everything like on every other Page. Then go to 'Appearance' -> '404 Error Page' from your WordPress Dashbord and select the created Page as your 404 error page. That's it!

Why you should choose this plugin
Different from other similar plugins the 404page plugin does not create redirects. That’s quite important because a correct code 404 is delivered which tells search engines that the page does not exist and has to be removed from the index. A redirect would result in a HTTP code 301 or 302 and the URL would remain in the search index.
Different from other similar plugins the 404page plugin does not create additional server requests.


As of version 2.0 the 404page Plugin uses GlotPress - the Translation System - for translations. Translations can be submitted at

Translation are highly appreciated. It would be great if you'd support the 404page Plugin by adding a new translation or keeping an existing one up to date. If you're new to GlotPress take a look at the Translator Handbook.
