Invalid themes requests should redirect/404

Component: Theme Directory Keywords: seo analytics reporter-feedback


A request to returns a 404 error, but, then the JS kicks in and returns the themes front page.

This is incredibly messy from an SEO and from an analytics perspective.

We either need to:

  • Continue to let 404 these 'properly' server-side, but replicate this experience client-side (which is odd, as adding an arbitrary query parameter like this shouldn't result in a 404), or;
  • Ensure that the server-side request matches the client-side experience.
