Our Spiffy new 404 Error Pages
« on: April 13, 2010, 08:16:45 PM »
We've added a nifty new 404 error page to replace the old 'default' page that you would normally see if you reached the 'Not Found' page here on the FamilyForum.

You can take a look here:

Nice! I've been meaning to do something like this for about 5 years now. LOL

BTW, you've missing a capital "I" in the first line. ;)

I guess it pays to check these things from time to time... at some point during various SMF upgrades the codes in .htaccess file got dumped, so our custom page was not working.  shocked003

Fixed now.

I'm not sure what you did wrong but right after I log in I get the 404 page. I click "Forum" and then I can view everything.

Not able to make it do that here Steve.

I tried both Chrome and Edge using the member 'Mia' to login/logout and it seemed to work OK.

Ahhh!

Just happened to me with FF!  shocked003

Need to sort through the code to see what's causing the 404 error page to display.

It didn't do it to me this time when I just logged in. It only seems to do it sometimes for some odd reason. I've been cooking and playing games all day...after sleeping. LOL I'll try to get into this with my site or a test site. Hmmm, maybe a test site will be best then I can see if there is a diff from this site like a mod that may be causing it or some extra coding.

EDIT: After I setup the test site, I'll give you access so you can see if there's any differences.

Getting into the setup now.

How do you want to make the error page? With a TP article, or just a stand alone html page, or what?

OK, gots an html page in place.
