Coding Horror: Creating User Friendly 404 Pages

A very interesting blog post. I originally saw the link from digg (Creating User Friendly 404 Pages20 comments) bt I felt this needed a special little separate posting on its own.

I always thought that it is a good idea to have a helpful 404 error page. Most sites on the net (inluding all of mine) have lousy missing page or sotry requested pages (what usually generates the 404 error).

In the comments of this posting,Andrew Ferguson posts a nice link to a very helpful error page: http://1976design.com/blog/error

Mark posted a link to a related article on creating helpful 404 pages: http://www.artlebedev.com/mandership/93/

Some agree that having the numbers 404 on the error page in not nessicary (but you the website admin shouldknow when someone has created this page) while others are not so sure. yossi (on March 17, 2007 09:53 PM) agrees that there needs to be an error code shown on the page.
