      20 Years! Cre8asiteforums 1998 - 2018   01/18/2018

      Cre8asiteforums In Its 20th Year In case you didn't know, Internet Marketing Ninjas released many of the online forums they had acquired, such as WebmasterWorld, SEOChat, several DevShed properties and these forums back to their founders. You will notice a new user interface for Cre8asiteforums, the software was upgraded, and it was moved to a new server.  Founder, Kim Krause Berg, who was retained as forums Admin when the forums were sold, is the hotel manager here, with the help of long-time member, "iamlost" as backup. Kim is shouldering the expenses of keeping the place going, so if you have any inclination towards making a donation or putting up a banner, she is most appreciative of your financial support.

Hi Everybody!


I am doing some work on a real estate agent's pre-existing website which is WordPress-based and using a theme called Agentpress.


The theme appears to come with a built-in 404 error page, but when I test going to it, I'm just getting my browser's generic 404 error page. So, somehow the connect isn't happening between the theme's inbuilt page and what I see. Here is the code I found in the back end for this page:

<?php get_header(); ?>




<div id="content">




<?php include(TEMPLATEPATH."/breadcrumb.php");?>




<div id="contentleft">




<div class="postarea">




<h1><?php _e("Not Found, Error 404", 'agentpress'); ?></h1>


<p><?php _e("The page you are looking for no longer exists. Perhaps you can return back to the site's", 'agentpress'); ?> <a href="<?php bloginfo('siteurl');?>"><?php _e("homepage", 'agentpress'); ?></av


Any ideas of why this might not be working?

From what I can see this is pretty standard WordPress.


Is the template's file name 404.php?


Have you worked with that server before?

Some browsers (I know of Chrome and IE) show the default error page when the total page size is below some minimum (512 bytes -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_404#Custom_error_pages ). Could it be that your error page is that small? A quick way to check is to use a tool like web-sniffer.net, which shows the result code and the content returned.
