Hi Guys,

Just wondering if someone could help me with an issue on some of my Wordpress blogs. On the homepage or on some of my posts there is a small box that displays a 404 error "the webpage cannot be found".

Have no idea why this box is there and if you refresh the location is random and changes. It's really bugging me out so would appreciate any help you knowledgeable people can give me!

Welcome to WebmasterWorld afzalb.

Have you consulted any of the WP community resources about this?

What plugins and widgets do you have running?

It sounds to me like an iframe with a bad URL. Do you have a plugin for random Amazon or EBay ads or anything like that running? An RSS aggregator? Latest Tweets?

Hi,

I have WP Robot running but this 404 error appears before I installed that. I have about 10 sites before this running ok but for the last 3 I've had this annoying white 404 box on the homepage. Not running any different widgets or apps from the sites that are working fine.

I'm new here so wasn't aware of the WP community resources. Tried googling this issue but found nothing that seemed to match my issue.

Strange. What happens if you change themes?

>>WP community resources.

That is to say, over at wordpress.org itself.

Have you rechecked the url addresses? I upgraded my all in one seo and the pro version started giving all my blog post url's a number instead of the name that I had originally assigned. It would have been nice if it had redirected the old url to the new one but that didn't happen so now I have to learn how to do a 301 redirect.

Just something to take a look at and also make sure the url's are set for public otherwise the private setting can cause a 404 error as well.
