I recently switched my regular web server website over to a WE standalone server site. All is well, except that Google has a few indexed links from the prior site that now result in 404 File Not Found errors. Is it possible to capture or redirect these 404 errors to the main site page or similar? It seems odd that WE standalone server wouldn’t be able to at least allow a 301 redirect to be implemented.
Not that odd. WE has always been pitched as a “web application” builder, not a website builder. With the exception of special/api URLs, all browser communication with a WE application is through its root path. Feature requests that might make sense would be some built-in ability to server static pages or have path handlers or some such thing.
To solve your immediate problem, you might consider using Apache to serve up the website proper and embed your app in a full-page frame. Then you could have Apache handle the missing pages, do redirects, etc.
