To redirect a 404 error page in WordPress, you can follow these steps:
1. Install and activate a plugin: Start by installing and activating a plugin called "Redirection." This plugin allows you to manage all types of redirects on your WordPress site, including 404 error redirects.
2. Access the plugin settings: Once the plugin is activated, go to your WordPress admin dashboard and navigate to "Tools" -> "Redirection."
3. Add a new redirect: In the Redirection settings, you'll find a section where you can add new redirects. Look for a button or link that says "Add new redirect" or something similar.
4. Configure the redirect: In the redirect settings, you'll typically find two fields: "Source URL" and "Target URL." The "Source URL" is the URL that generates the 404 error, and the "Target URL" is the destination you want to redirect the user to. Enter the appropriate URLs in these fields.
5. Save the redirect: Once you've entered the source and target URLs, save the redirect. The plugin will handle the redirection process automatically.
6. Test the redirect: To ensure that the redirect is working correctly, try accessing the source URL that previously resulted in a 404 error. If the redirection is set up correctly, you should be redirected to the target URL you specified.
By following these steps and using the Redirection plugin (or a similar plugin with similar functionality), you can easily redirect 404 error pages in WordPress.
