Custom 404 Pages not showing in IE (3 posts)

    I'm working on changing the wordpress default (Kubrick) theme to my liking, but I need some help.

    My custom 404 page ( which I havent customized yet), shows up in firefox, but when I click the same link to try to get the same 404 with IE, it brings me to IE's default 404 page, instead of my 404 page, embedded in the template.

    Just go to http://www.pauljohns.com and click reviews or intervews, which i havent created yet

    I consulted the Codex, and edited my .htaccess file, but it didn't seem to have an impact.

    Can anyone please help me?

    Thank you.

    Go into your server panel and delete the default 404

    Internet Explorer has a "feature" where it will display (what Microsoft calls) "helpful and friendly error messages" when the error page is smaller than a certain size. Try increasing the size of the default error page by adding more text or an image to it.
