Home Forums Other WordPress 404 Re: WordPress 404


Sometimes, WordPress goes to a page that almost has the same URL. I’m not 100% sure why, I’ve seen it happen with my own sites, and it’s possible it did that because the page was renamed or something. For example, http://domain/some-link would exist, but if you’d go to http://domain/somelink it would go to the same page.

Maybe that’s what’s happening?

What do you mean with “I just get a random web page rather than my 404, is it really random? It changes when you refresh? Does it change the URL into the page you’re viewing/
