    404 error page

    Hello,

    I was wondering what you all on here use for your 404 error message. I havent found a site that has a good message yet. What do you use? Or what are some urls that have found to use as a good example.

    Thanks

    I always make sure there is (at the minimum) a message letting the user know the files wasn't found, a link to the home page, a link to the site map, and a search box.

    Naturally, full navigation would be ideal.

    Another thing I like to do is to code in an email notifier of every 404 and its referrer. That keeps the web admin on top of anything as soon as it happens.
