Where did you come up with the link of ""? That's not a legitimate page, because there is no plugin named "nothing".

#2 @hnle

I'm sorry, I have missed the reply.

Will is not located in that accessing such pages if the remaining links somewhere in such deleted plugin.
Of course plugin named "nothing" does not exist you know.

Is strange is broken links in the to 404 pages exist.

I'm sorry, but I don't understand your response.

None of your links work. They appear to show proper 404 pages or redirects to proper places to me.

What are you seeing that is incorrect, exactly?

I do not know what to do description...


Not good

Right, I get that, but why are you looking at the /nothing/developers page? That's not linked to from anywhere. That's not a valid link.

Replying to Otto42:

Right, I get that, but why are you looking at the /nothing/developers page? That's not linked to from anywhere. That's not a valid link.

I think the broader point @hnle is making is that there's a bug with the pagination on the 404 page for pages 2+. The first 404 page shows the 404 message + pagination + results. Pages 2+ show the generic 404 page only.

He's using /nothing simply as a way to force the 404 for demonstration pvvvurposes.

Thanks @DrewAPicture, right.

Okay, so, would the valid fix here would be to have /nothing/developers redirect you back to /plugins? Because pagination isn't supposed to work there. That's not a valid URL to ever visit. The fact that you get anything at all other than the Page Not Found is the real error.

I just don't quite grasp how you got to /nothing/developers in the first place. Where did this link occur or show up? Because that link should never exist, and if it does, then I want to remove it.

Note: Pagination works perfectly fine on the plugin-not-found pages.

Adding that /developers to the link indeed breaks it, but there's no way to do that other than to type it in manually, as far as I know. Or is this actually linked to from somewhere?

I think there's three fixes here that we need to do (at some point):

  1. All 404 pages on /plugins should match.
  2. Paging should “redirect” to a real URL once you go to page 2.
  3. All 404 pages should send a 404 status code.

Deleted/non-extant plugins now redirect to

Is there more to do here or can we close this?

#13 @samuelsidler

The new directory in development has an actual 404 page instead of showing search results and returns a 404 error. Does that cover everything in this ticket?

#14 @Ipstenu

That new 404 is adorable. I think we're good :)
