Redirect 404 to Homepage


Redirect all 404 missing links to the homepage using a 301 redirect. This means any old broken links will still count towards your site’s SEO ranking.

This plugin is designed to be very lightweight. There are no options or settings (or annoying banner ads trying to sell SEO services). Simply activate the plugin and you’re good to go. It will redirect 404s silently in the background without slowing down your website.


  • Works with any theme.
  • Super lightweight (only 6 lines of code).
  • No extra marketing/SEO premium selling.
  • 100% free and open source.


  • Go to the Plugins > Add New screen in your WordPress dashboard.
  • Search for „404 to homepage“. Click Install and activate it.
  • That’s all! If you try accessing a page which does not exist, you will be redirected to the homepage.

Unfortunately, it took me too long to find out that Google can't find my XML sitemap anymore since I activated the plugin. Trying to access my sitemap ended up on my websites homepage. I had to deactivate the plugin. Now my sitemap can be found again. [EDIT] The author modified the plugin so my XML sitemap is not redirected to the homepage anymore. The plugin should have a setting that allows users to exclude URLs from redirection.

Plugin is working for my site. I like that there are no options and it just works right away. Thank you!

This plugin redirects all links to homepage, and this is very harmful. Affiliate links do not work with this plugin. Instead of redirecting the 404 page to the front page, it redirects all links, including affiliate links, to the front page.

Exactly as the description shows: no difficult settings or marketing. Just install and the plugin will do its job. Perfect!
