Save your visitors from unhelpful 404 errors!
Instead of quickly giving up when a visitor reaches content that doesn’t exist, make an effort to guess what they were
after in the first place. This plugin will perform a search of your posts, pages, tags and categories, using keywords from the requested
URL. If there’s a match, redirect to that content instead of showing the error. If there’s more than one match, the
404 template can use some template tags to provide a list of suggestions to the visitor.
Returns true if there are some suggestions, false otherwise
Retrieve an array of post objects for rendering manually.
Draw a list of suggested posts.
Pass the parameter “list” to render suggestions as a list.
Query posts for use in a Loop. Eg:
<?php genius404_loop(); ?> <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?> <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2> <?php the_excerpt(); ?> <?php endwhile; ?>
Note that the loop will not display pages correctly, as it is not built to support them. It is recommended that if you use
a loop like that above, do not enable searching of pages.
Retrieve an array of search terms used to populate the suggestions list, for use with contextual highlighting, etc.
- Unzip the package, and upload
