How To: Customise Your WordPress 404 Error Page

Small Potato made a post about 404 pages for WordPress. His solution isn’t so bad, but if you want the real deal check out Dax’s F*ck 404′s for WordPress. This great little code snippet will redirect any link juice (PageRank or PR) towards your main hog (index page), at the same time as redirecting your visitors there. This means that if you delete, rename or move a popular post then the links you had pointing at that post will be redirected to point at your index page.

Whilst you’re there you might be interested in some of his (mainly SEO) WordPress plugins including the most excellent Subster Rejuvenation.

I can’t believe I am actually encouraging normal people to visit Dax’s site.

Changes at the ThemeViewer

Looks like the guys at WordPress have finally got tired of all the bitching that was going on at the ThemeViewer. Today there is a new announcement on the homepage:

A few updates on the site:

  • The test run site has been upgraded to WordPress 2.1.
  • Comments on the test run site has been deleted, and commenting is now closed.
  • The rating system on the main site has been removed – many users noticed that theme authors misused the system to gain more attention to their themes.
  • People who have requested permission to upload, now has uploading rights.
  • In the future, people who sign up for an account will have permission to upload right away.

Regarding all the people who have volounteered to help – thanks a lot. I will get in touch with some of you within the next week, since the site will need moderators to keep down the volume of spam, bitching, theme ripoff’s and duplicate uploads.

Another little change I noticed is the introduction of sitewide ThemeViewer sponsored links. This is kind of ironic for me, as I was getting abused for allowing sponsored links on themes.

I think the changes seem to be for the good, its a shame however that the functionallity of the site has to be compromised to keep a few pests under control. What do you think?
