410 for WordPress


This plugin will issue a HTTP 410 response to requests for articles that no longer exist on your blog. When you delete a post or page, it records the URL for that page and issues a 410 response when that URL is requested. You can also manually manage the list of obsolete URLs.

The HTTP Specification defines the 410 response header for use when a resource has been permanently removed. It informs robots visiting your site that the requested content has gone, and that they should stop trying to access it.

If you come across any bugs or have suggestions, please use the plugin support forum. I can’t fix it if I don’t know it’s broken! Please check the FAQ for common issues.

Can I customise the 410 response message?

The default message is a simple plain text message that reads “Sorry, the page you requested has been permanently removed.” This is because many people want to minimise the bandwidth that is used by error responses.

If you want to customise the message, just place a template file called 410.php in your theme folder, and the plugin will automatically use that instead. Take a look at your theme’s 404.php file to see how the template needs to be structured. You can also hook into the wp_410_response action to trigger any specific events for queries resulting in a 410 response.

Will this plugin work if a caching/performance plugin is active ?

The plugin has been tested with the following caching plugins, and should work even if they are active:

  • W3 Total Cache
  • WP Super Cache

I have not tested it with other caching plugins, and there is a high chance that it will not work with many of them. Most of them will cache the response as if it is a 404 (page not found) response, and issue a 404 response header instead of a 410 response header.

Still working when tested but an update would be nice to avoid getting hacked or breakdown of site

I use the plugin for Micropub protocol, to tell another site I have deleted my contribution.

It is 2020 and it still works. In the plugin settings, I use a wild card to return a 410 rather than a 404 from posts.*/ The plugin return a 410 in the header. BRAVO.

I removed this plugin based on help text from Google Webmaster Tools: If you have permanently deleted content without intending to replace it with newer, related content, let the old URL return a 404 or 410. Currently Google treats 410s (Gone) the same as 404s (Not found). Returning a code other than 404 or 410 for a non-existent page (or redirecting users to another page, such as the homepage, instead of returning a 404) can be problematic.

Install, activate and it works! simple and effective solution! … BTW: I’m using Comet Cache PRO and have no problems
