How To Fix Error 404 Not Found On Your Wordpress Site by todhost(m): 11:57am On Sep 06
An error 404 occurs on every website that undergoes changes in URL, and redesign.. It occurs when you click on a link, but instead of getting the site you want, an error pops up indicating that the requested page is not available. Something along the lines of '404 Not Found'. A 404 error is the standardized HTTP status code. The message is sent from the webserver of an online presence, to the web browser (usually the client) that sent the HTTP request. The browser then displays this error code.

Of all potential errors that can be found on your WordPress website, Error 404 is one of the frustrating ones for both you and your site visitors. Stumbling upon Error 404 is not something that you want your first-time visitors to experience. Also, a 404 can be an indicator that there were some changes, and you should add a 301 redirect for Search Engine Optimization (SEO) purposes.
