    He has hidden pages that he doesn’t want people to easily get to and he doesn’t want to password protect the…?

    Found a solution – added this code to functions.php

    add_filter(‘redirect_canonical’, ‘stop_guessing’);
    function stop_guessing($url) {
    if (is_404()) {
    return false;
    return $url;



    Nice tip! Thanks for letting us know.
