    Do you guys think the error page is a little bland? How about making it more up to par with the design of this forum? Perhaps a border, red indicating something went wrong etc. Ill leave the implementations to the developers as i just want to give them the request.

    Perhaps add an optional bells-and-whistles admin can elect to enable for there, which if the URL format is well-formed, extract keywords from the URL, do a quick search, and offer a small list of threads:

    if i remember correctly the better way to handle this things was a 404 ... :)

    It is a 404.

    Indeed I think KURTZ is thinking the standard browser 404 page, but a custom 404 page is just as much a 404 as any other as long as the header is sent...

    I guess this page is fully controlled by templates??? so if people so want to add more features to the 404 like a more obvious search or some additional navigation they can?

    I don't really think off the shelves a software package should have a glorified 404 page. I do like the idea of possibly adding in "Did you mean:" but it would be no biggie. I think this is a problem if a URL is typed incorrectly which shouldn't really be too big of a problem in most cases(I could be wrong).

    weird, try to select the two links which vrtsolus has posted, the first is a 'forum's' normal error (and i don't see any 404 there), but the second (the quoted message) is the standard 404 ...

    anyways, Cezzy is right, i meant this ... and also i remember the custom 404 page that you (or your fellas) have released for the vBSEO ...

    First one is the correct one.
    Second one is a different link covered under the text of the correct one. It tries to load something out side of the XenForo installation (/community), which is why it is not caught by XenForo, and so it throws the default 404 message.

    /me wonders when I became Cezzy... Originally I was just Cez, over the years I gained a z some how (me no know how) now I gained a y???

    Yeah I believe it was Brian that wrote the custom 404 for vBulletin that we are sharing on vBSEO.com....

    I am not seeing what you are saying about vrtsolus's post though :S

    OK, maybe this needs to be fixed ... :) but i'm wondering about the first: is this a 404 too?

    It could use some sprucing up.
