    We are currently investigating this, the feature does not seem to work as expected on the latest version. We will get back to you shortly.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    It mean now it error and dont work on wp latest ?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the question.

    This only affects the latest version of the plugin and not the latest version of WordPress.

    We will get back to you with more information on this.

    Can you notify me by email when Fallback Behavior work again ?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the follow up.

    Sure, we will be in touch.

    Thank you.

    That is a fallback for current redirects. It does not mean your 404s will be automatically redirected. It just means that if you setup a redirect using Rank Math and the target of that redirection turns out to be a 404 – Rank Math will fallback to the settings you selected in that screenshot you shared.

    Here is how it works:
    You redirect Link A to Link Z.
    You redirect Link B to Link Z.

    But, if Link Z doesn’t exist on your website or it shows a 404, Link A and Link B will be redirected to your fallback URL.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    So, how i can auto redirect 404s link ?
    I want direct 404s to home page if 301 Link doesn’t exist

    Hello,

    You cannot redirect 404s automatically. We do not recommend doing that either.

    > I want direct 404s to home page if 301 Link doesn’t exist

    Then, choose the fallback as homepage:
    redirect to homepage

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.
