    Default Custom Error Pages

    Here's my method for making custom error pages.. It may be a bit convoluted but effective nonetheless.

    Make a new page in BV and name it 404/whatever.
    Make the page exactly as you would have it appear when your customer gets a 404 Error.
    Save it....do not publish
    Preview the page
    Right click and "View Source"
    This info will load into notepad by default.
    "Save As" 404.shtml and put it in your BV folder
    (I have an Error Pages folder in my BV file)
    Open your FTP and drag the 404.shtml file into your public_html folder
    Now you have a custom error page.
    View the below page
    www.zone5pix.com/xyz

    The only problem with this method is that it does not repeat the URL that the customer used.

    What I've noticed and I don't know whether it's my PC, My browser, Vista or what but althought I have created a custom error page.

    Click here and put a random /extension (I don't want to post the actual url)

    I get a brief look at the error page and then it gets forwarded to something like this

    A bit annoying really, has any one else experienced this.

    Cheers

    Works fine for me. It is your computer (AVG) that is forwarding.
    FYI, the last few links/buttons on the left menu are not working.

    Thanks for looking Carbon Terry, however you've got me now. All my links seem to be working. I am using IE.

    Which links do you speak of and are you using a different browser?

    Cheers
