I agree that this would be cool, but in most cases you never see the 404 error. You're just redirected to another url that tells you that the page
you were looking for was not found. Even if you could hack Internet Explorer to give you our own personal 404 page you'd rarely ever see it.
Guys, I don't know anything about computers but I don't think the ATS 404 error page is an actual
404 error page.
What I mean is, it is just a splash page redirect when one tries to link to a thread or forum that they don't have permission to view. The page
itself has ATS links at the top and a google search bar at the bottom.
As such it seems to simply have a 404 graphic and is a simple redirect than an actual 404 error.
Does that make sense?
Yes, it does, because that is really what happens.
If the server does not find the page that was requested then two things may happen:
1- It may send a complete HTML page, with images and even some Flash animations
2- It may just send the response 404 to the browser
When (2) happens the browser becomes the responsible for showing some message to the user. Internet Explorer, apparently, has the error pages inside a
DLL file, so we cannot just change them easily.
thanks for every1's insite, im second time on, and just got 404, i didn't know what i did or what was happening. i nearly ran outside for 2 blocks
around to take a look and see if some1 was there. And the blocks around my house are huge!!
