This package provides a retroactive way to fix 404 errors in a django based website, by intercepting them and providing the option to add a redirect for any of these 404 urls.
Install the package. Usage of pip is highly recommended:
pip install django-clever404
Next, add the package to the INSTALLED_APPS setting:
INSTALLED_APPS = (
Then we can add the middleware:
MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = (
That's it. Sync or migrate the database, start the server, and from now on it should maintain a list of 404 urls. If the site uses the admin framework, clever404 provides an admin interface to add redirection urls.
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
