db8 404 Errors

Version 1.1
Maturity Stable
Release Date 2015-03-31 02:00

This Administrator Module displays a list of 404 Errors in the back-end Control Panel, so the errors are clearly visible for Webmasters right after login.

The Module retrieves the lists of 404 Errors from the Redirect Manager. With the Module webmasters become better aware about incoming traffic to non-existing pages so that they can redirect those to working pages.

The Module has a couple of configuration options: number, order, order direction of the 404 errors, and the Redirect Status: All, Disabled, Enabled, Archived, and Trashed. 
The default is to show a list of 5 Errors, Disabled (= 404 errors that have not yet been redirected), ordered by number of hits, starting with the most hits.
With this default setting a webmaster will notice the non-existing page with most traffic best. Creating redirection for those will probably solve most future 404 errors.

Note: In order to display 404 Errors, Joomla's Redirect Plugin should be enabled.
