Hello,

 

I tried a number of plugins (had no impact; 404 page still displayed) and also creating a 404.php page with redirect in the theme folder which did not work either.....the only thing that worked was to put the redirect in the .htaccess folder.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks

Hi there,

 

Pagelines will have its own 404 template inside the framework core, so I would imagine the one you've created won't get a look in as it will be told to use the system generated one first etc.

 

Have you tried doing the redirect through google webmaster tools instead -
