This is a must have. WP guesses the most wild things without it. I found thousands of random urls on google, none exists. This plugin makes them 404. like they always should. A new hook will be added in 5.5 add_filter( 'do_redirect_guess_404_permalink', '__return_false' ); https://make.wordpress.org/core/2020/06/26/wordpress-5-5-better-fine-grained-control-of-redirect_guess_404_permalink/ Until then. Must have!

It’s pretty horrible that wordpress auto-guesses a url because it will break pagination when category pages are auto-guessed and that leads to lots of internal 404s by webmasters. I got this plugin working and it solved all my problems. Just make sure you purge any cdn and cache. I think it also might conflict with some Drupal to WordPress migration plugins, so you'll have to disable those eventually.

It's not really needed because the code can just be put in functions.php, but this does make it easier for people who don't know anything about PHP.
