    I am looking for suggestions on a good plugin to use to manage my 404 page. I simply want to control which pages are seen on the 404 page. For example, I don’t want the landing pages I have created to show up on the 404 page.

    I don’t want to edit any of the code in my theme. I am looking for a simple way to do this via plugin or if there is another simple way… I am using the studiopress News Theme on my site.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I know you said you don’t want to edit code but it is simple actually.

    You would just copy 404.php from genesis directory into the child theme and edit it.


    <?php //wp_list_pages( 'title_li=' ); ?>


    for example,

    <?php wp_list_pages( 'title_li=&exclude=2,38' ); ?>

    where 2 and 38 are the IDs of Pages that you want to exclude.

    Ref.: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_list_pages#Exclude_Pages_from_List

    A plugin like http://wordpress.org/plugins/reveal-ids-for-wp-admin-25/ can be used to display IDs of Pages in the backend.



    What about the Genesis 404 page plugin? You can find it here: http://wordpress.org/plugins/genesis-404-page/

    I love it. Gives me control over what I want others to see – also gives me an opportunity to suggest the visitor opt in for any free reports, etc.

    Just a thought.
