Hi -

Which kind of error messages?

If you wish to customize your 404 ‘file not found’ error message, simply create a file named “missing.html” and place it in the root level of your site directory. It’ll show up when someone goes to a page that doesn’t exist.

You can also create ones for 500 ‘internal servor error’, too. I think you call the file ‘error.html’

/me goes and looks it up in the Kbase.

Aha, yep, you can create custom 404, 401, 403 and 500 error messages.
