There isn't a custom 404 error page in this theme. This is actually pretty common.It would be best to make a donation and then a request to Flynn to add it to the list for the next rev - since atahualpa uses a single file for all page handling.

If you don't mind hacking the theme, you can edit the index.php file and go to the end and change the 'NOT found' text to whatever you want.

I want to show my index.php for my 404 page. I have a site summary there, so somebody might find something relevant. So, I don't need a custom 404. So, how do you make the index.php so it can be used as a 404?

Thank you,

X

I opened the index.php, saved as to 404.php, and added this line in the .htaccess:

ErrorDocument 404 /404.php

This is what happened:


Warning: include(TEMPLATEPATH/functions/bfa_get_options.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/14/5765714/html/404.php on line 2

Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening 'TEMPLATEPATH/functions/bfa_get_options.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/local/php5/lib/php') in /home/content/14/5765714/html/404.php on line 2

Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_header() in /home/content/14/5765714/html/404.php on line 3

Help.

Edited to add: I went to permalinks and switched to another setting and switched back and now I don't get that error message. But, when I put in a page title that is not in my blog I get the original 404 message:

Not Found
Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here.

I don't get mine. Where should I put the 404.php? Should it be in the same place the index.php is or in the root?

Thank you,

X

1) did you copy the Atahualpa index.php?
2) it must be in the atahualpa folder
