I'm wondering if there's a way to change the header response to 404 so google doesn't give us a soft 404 error and guide customers to a blank category page with the default message...."This category is currently empty. Please check back soon for new Products..."
We have a lot of categories that have changed ID's so it would take awhile to manually delete those with no products....unless there's an sql query of some sort that could manage to do that?
What we are trying to do would be similar to this thread but with categories
We are using Multi-Store v9.3
