I a while ago I saw how amazing the WordPress plug-in infrastructure was. As a privacy nut, I thought it would be rad if there was an easy way to make every page of a blog be a 404. For humans, they would not notice. For robots, they would think there was nothing there.
Without further adue, I give verison 1.0 of The 404er plugin for WordPress. Use wisely!
But isn’t that a setting already in WordPress? Site Visibility?
Codesmith – Great question! However, the Privacy Settings for a WordPress blog only output “noindex” and “nofollow” meta headers on pages. Additionally it doesn’t allow pingbacks and such. Check out WordPresses page on Privacy Settings for the nitty gritty details.
My plugin takes the nuclear option :)
