How do I customize error messages for my site?

Within control panel select Custom Error Pages. Select the error code link and place whatever code you like. Maintain the default file name it gives you or it will not work without additional changes to the .htaccess files.

If that does not work edit your htaccess file and add the following line:

ErrorDocument 404 /404.html

404.html would be the filename and path to your custom error page for a 404. You may do the same for other common errors.
