Site Operator on WhiteHouse.gov reveals tons of 404’s

We just did a site operator search on www.whitehouse.gov (today is the day of Donald Trump’s inauguration) and its 3pm in the afternoon.  There are about 113,000 search results and most of the top pages are being archived.  For example Obama’s Thank you Letter has been redirected to this new page (archive)
https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/blog/2017/01/19/thank-you
But for the most part there are tons of pages that cannot be found here are the links below.  Please note we cannot make these live links as they are all 404 pages that cannot be found. Its not good to link to 404 pages in general.

  • Climate Change — https://www.whitehouse.gov/energy/climate-change
  • Obama’s Farewell — https://www.whitehouse.gov/farewell
  • This page still has “Letters to President Obama” but notice that header already has “President Donald J Trump” — https://www.whitehouse.gov/letters

Obviously right now the content is probably all being transferred to the archives and that’s why you are seeing alot of 404 or page not found.  In about a week this should all settle and hopefully all these 404’s will be redirected to the most relevant pages.
