 > Yeah, with the non-standard permalink with %category% the behaviour is
 to show "There's no articles in this category yet" whether it's a category
 or not.

 in those instances, and whether you're really that bothered about 404s
 being sent.

 Whether or not the theme gives a blank page or not is the way the theme is
 coded, I've tried it with several themes now diagnosing the problem

 Starting to become an issue for me as I've just switched a Joomla site
 over to Wordpress and Google isnt ditching the old links as they arent
 returning 404's
