Description

When using static homepage feature, non existing page urls open homepage instead of 404 page.

For example,
Your site is https://example.com
You set static homepage instead of default latest post.

Now, if someone visit url,
https://example.com/page/999999 or https://example.com/?s%2525252527993994-%
This will display homepage with status 200, instead of 404 page.

hi, can you help with which theme you are using? If your theme does not have a template for 404.php it will by default redirect to the index.php template
