UPHPU meeting on custom 404 pages
Feb 22, 2006 @ 06:49:49

From Richard Miller's blog today, there's a new post with content from the Utah PHP Users Group meeting that's just passed (Feb. 2006) on the topic of custom 404 pages.

When you try to visit a web page that doesn't exist, the server usually returns a 404 error message - "Page Not Found". At the Utah PHP Users group meeting last Thursday, Mac Newbold presented on custom 404 pages. Custom 404 pages can help maintain your website branding, help you fix broken links, and help your users find something useful when they don't find what they're looking for.

Custom 404 pages are even more powerful when you combine them with PHP. I certainly didn't expect the flood of ideas that Mac presented for using custom 404 pages.

Among the suggestions of things to do with the error pages are things like: sending an email when someone gets a 404, search the site for something similar, use it as a redirect for old to new URLs, and more.

Utah PHP Users Group - February Meeting, 02.16.06 @ 7pm
Feb 16, 2006 @ 06:37:15

For the February 2006 meeting, they Utah PHP Users Group will be talking about Apache 404 handler scripts created in PHP.

Mac Newbold will present on PHP 404 handler scripts. Running PHP with Apache has some definite advantages. One that I use frequently is using a PHP script as the 404 document that apache uses when a page can't be found. You can use it for many things. PHP.net uses it to run a site search, to try and find the page you were looking for. You can use it to create "virtual" URLs, where one script handles requests for many different URLs and hands back dynamic content based on the page name. You can even combine it with things like GD to make dynamic images that are created on the fly for each URL.

The meeting is happening on the 16th at 7pm MST at the Linux Networx offices. You can RSVP and get a map to the location from their site...
