You don’t need anything in the htaccess – just have your 404 template in your theme directory.
hah! magic. Would you be able to explain WHY the default location of the 404.php seems to have moved from the blog’s home directory to the theme directory? I cant seem to make any sense out of it.
I don’t remember it ever being in the WP root…
In this way you can have custom 404 pages for every theme.
My apologies, reading more closely in the custom 404 section of this site, I see a paragraph about what happens if a theme doesnt have a 404 page in its directory. That will learn me be in a rush and gloss over things too much.
I think that I thought that since the .htaccess was in the blog’s main directory, the path I had chosen for it was also correct.
Thanks for your quick reply!
