Hello. When a topic or post or forum has been deleted or renamed (or moved but i haven't tried that), the old url returns a page with 404 Page not Found with a Search option.

BUT the Page HEADER is:

HTTP/1.0 200 OK =>

in the eyes of Google and other search engines and that is very wrong. They should return 404 also in the header.

Thanks

Ideally - we could havean option to set a custom 404 page, promting the visitor to search the forum in this case.

Not what i'm talking about. The page header (http) returns 200 OK and should return a proper 404. Nothing to do with user interface or search options.
