I’m personally a big fan of this plugin but recently I noticed that people who have install their WordPress website in a subdirectory are experiencing an issue were missing pages are being redirected to the WordPress subdirectory instead of the actual Homepage URL.

It is very easy to fix this issue and here’s how:

1. In your WordPress Admin Dashboard click on Plugins.

3. Inside the box where the plugin’s code is stored scroll to the bottom and you should see the below code:

function redirect_all_404s() {
global $wp_query;
if ($wp_query->is_404) {
wp_redirect(get_bloginfo('wpurl'),301);exit;
}

 
4. Replace the below line:

wp_redirect(get_bloginfo('wpurl'),301);exit;

 
with this:

wp_redirect(get_bloginfo('url'),301);exit;
