Redirect 404 to parent


This plugin helps you define redirect rules that will redirect any 404 request under a defined URL base to the parent URL base.

Simply put, it does this: «When there is a 404 found for an URL like /about/dummy-url => redirect the visitor to /about/.»

  • Note: This plugin is not intended to offer redirect rule creation features for any kind of redirection within the WordPress system. It simply resolves a problem via Plugin not custom functions or template code.*


The plugin adds an option/settings page where you can set up these redirects easily.

The following features are included in this plugin:

  • You can defined the BASE URL – this is the URL that will be served as a starting point.
  • You can define the type of the redirection done by WordPress (302, 301, etc.).
  • You can add as many rules you want and easily delete them if you don’t need them anymore
  • The plugin checks if you already added a rule based on the slug, so you won’t add the same rule twice.
  • The plugin checks if the URL you are setting up as a BASE exists in WordPress as a post or page, so you’re not creating an erroneous URL base.
  • You can see a log of the 404 redirected by the plugin (if the plugin registers any 404 errors), so you can easily identify what URLs are generating the 404 errors.
  • If there are more then 10 rows in the 404 log/statistics, you can download the whole log for an URL in CSV format.

Example Use Case

  • Base URL (set up in this plugin as a rule):
  • Target URL:

In this case if a visitor try to access the TARGET URL, WordPress returns a 404 error/page by default because the page/post doesn’t exist.

This plugin will automatically redirect the visitor to instead of letting the visitor end up on a 404 page.

My website lists dive watches scraped from eBay. I have always had a problem with old and obsolete listings. For 6 months I have DELETED any posts over 4 weeks old. This has resulted in thousands of 404 errors ... With this plugin I can 301 redirect any deleted listing (post) to the parent category eg. /seiko-tuna-uk/this-watch-has-been-deleted/ 301 redirected to /seiko-tuna-uk/ where the visitor can browse the latest 12 listings 🙂 THANK YOU PS - I have made a small donation
