#6803 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

404.php not working - instead dumps all pages onto 1 page - now a temp workaround !!!

This is using WP2.5 any theme !

When one finds or mistypes an url eg. http://wadsworthquads.com/frogs instead of showing the 404.php page it calls every page from the WP pages Dir. and dumps it all onto one page. Ive tried different themes but still this error occurs and also downloading a new WP2.5 copy over previous install of 2.5 but still no luck.

I know one instance where this has happend to someone else but this problem went away when he spotted that his archive pages were missing and replaced them !!!!

So has any one had this bug and managed to remedy it! I have searched wordpres.org and google but no luck.

All the best Graham

Works for me: http://www.viper007bond.com/frogs

If this was widespread, I'm sure we would have heard about it way earlier.

Disable any active plugins and see if that fixes it.

Thanks Viper but on one of the sites I'm having this problem when all plugins are deactivated on a totally fresh install no content added. I also get this problem with sites that have been around since WP2.2.

Any other thoughts welcome !!!

Hi there I left a similar message on forum and someone has found a workaround to stop this happening !!!

I consider this still a bug as something has to be done in a certain way and if its not it will return back to the 404 page being broken !!!!

Anyway this is the link to finding out how to fix this !!!
