Yes! It is on! Join the first 100 users to try the one of the Best 404 Plugins and Redirections for WordPress.
What is Forty Four Plugin?
If you haven’t used or bumped into Forty Four WordPress Plugin yet, it is a super Lightweight 404 Page besides being an automatic 404 to 301 redirect for SEO. Detailed visit logs and custom redirect for each links are also available. Take a look at the full free version details here.
It has had 2,000+ downloads with 800+ active installations since its release in February 2016. With shining 5-star plugin reviews from 21 users, the plugin’s reputation is quite good. Feel free to read them and decide for yourself 😉
What are the new features for the pro version?
I’ve been working hard on the additional features which should be very helpful on your website. It’s totally optional to upgrade on pro version since the free one is very useful enough. Below are the additional features that you can get.
Branding and Custom Menu
Uploading a logo which is very helpful on branding your 404 page. The logo will be automatically linked to website’s homepage which will give the users an easy access.
Elegantly-designed full overlay menu is also an option if you want more user interactions even on your broken links. The menu is fully customizable from color scheme to font size, which is very easy via colorpicker options.
Aside from full-centered layout, you’ll now have three(3) layout options. Choose from full-centered(free), left-aligned and right-aligned layout.
Don’t want the default font? The pro version is now integrated with Google Fonts. Simply select the font family and change the font size.
The free version only shows you how many times the links were visited by the users. You can now have the detailed visit logs, and most of all you’ll see the referrer website links! You can now notify your outbound links to update their url. Totally helpful 😉
Search box is made more useful. When the users search, the keywords will be saved and you’ll have the idea what the users are searching on the broken links so you can include the keywords on your articles to give them better results. One of my favourite features.
You can now add custom style or scripts which will be printed below the body end tag. If you’re geeky enough to change the layout, go ahead and add the code there. If you want to add Google Analytics Code, just copy and paste it there. I’m planning on adding this on the free version as well so if you will just upgrade to pro for this feature, don’t. But if you want to help on the plugin’s development, I’m encouraging you to sign up on the beta testing now.
Do you love the pro features? Join the Beta Testing now!
I really hope that the features are enough for you to go pro and participate on the beta testing. We’ve successfully tested and fixed the bugs we’ve collected so far but it’s not always guaranteed to be bug-free until more users use it which is the main reason of this beta testing period.
If you join the beta testing, you’ll have the pro copy with regular license for only $4.99. This will give you 75% discount for the regular price which I’ve set to $19.99 but will vary depending on the beta results.
Beta Phase has ended. Go to the plugin page for the final pricing. Thanks!
Why beta is not free?
Since I’ve been looking for the type of people who will pay for value, I’ve decided to use the discount option to insure that the beta testers are the real customers that will provide quality feedback that will help their sites. This is totally understandable to others but if you need more information you might want to read this article from freemius and I hope you’ll understand my side. Thanks!
If you’re already in love with the free version and want a feature that is not yet listed on the pro features, don’t hesitate to use the comment section for your suggestions. I’d really appreciate it. Thanks!
