Anyone have a recommendation for a plugin that is current for creating a custom 404 page?

I can't find anywhere in the Atahualpa Theme Options to do this.

You can always copy the 404.php from twentyfourteen and use that.

Thanks, Juggledad.

I take it that will override the text that shows up now?

there are two cases for a not found
1) you do a search and nothig is found
2) you enter a url for the site for a page that doesn't exist.

If you don't have a 404.php then both cases display the information that is at teh bottom of 'index.php'. If you have a 404.php then the second case displays what you have in the 404.php

Hmmm, I wonder if the infer in the index.php should be a theme option...

That'd be great. I can only speak for myself, but learning how to customize the 404 by changing a PHP script is daunting.

Atahualpa is, bar none, the best theme for those of us who are not well versed in HTML and CSS. Having the option to create a great 404 Error page would be really nice.

As I'm going through Google's SEO information they speak at length about the importance of a 404 page that actually provides links back to pertinent information and encourages the visitor to remain on the site.
