Dynamic 404 pages

    I am looking for a forum package that has the ability to generate a custom 404 (either out of the box or via a plugin) that will dynamically display 5 to 10 random/most recent/most popular topics, perhaps with a brief excerpt from those topics. Is this possible with XenForo?

    You will need an add-on, this isn't possible out of the box.

    Is there an add-on like that?

    That's the whole purpose of this thread, to ask if the functionality is available, via a plugin or otherwise.

    That might be work! Will the URL in the address bar still have the missing page's URL? Or will it have the 404 page's URL?

    Thanks, that's exactly what I was asking. Have you been studying analytics for your 404s? Does it look like these dynamic 404s are indexed by Google?

    That's interesting, how do you point your 404 to xenforo's page?

    XenForo does it themselves if the full seo htaccess is present...

    So you just edit the template of the 404 page?

    Basically. Although I'm pretty sure it's the same template for all error pages, and the only think that's different is the displayed phrase.
