So I am working on a plugin where I want to selectivly throw a 404 error.
I try header() and this sets the http header to show a not found error, but
I get the browsers default 404 error page.
I try including the 404.php template file but while it looks like a 404
error to the user, the http header status shows 200 ok.
I try using both methods together again no luck,. I want the http status
code to show 404 AND to use the 404.php template to show the user. How does
the core do this?
