Those Pesky 404 Page Not Found Errors

I recently highlighted some amusing 404 Page Not Found Errors, but for most people, the Page Not Found Error isn’t amusing. It’s irritating.

Site Point’s article, “Not Found Is Not An Option: Error Handling and User Experience” explores indepth what happens on a site to trigger a Page Not Found Error and how to deal with it.

WordPress enables you to create your own unique 404 Page Not Found Page for your full version of WordPress. See the WordPress Codex article on Creating a WordPress Error 404 Page in your WordPress Theme. Or check of the various WordPress Plugins available to help you set your 404 Page Not Found Error page or other redirect issues featured in WordPress Plugins To Help You Administer Your Blog.
