Why is the default 404 still showing up and messing with my layout up top?
A 404 error is a standard HTTP error message code that means the website you were trying to reach couldn't be found on the server. It's a client-side error, meaning either the webpage was removed or moved and the URL wasn't changed accordingly, or the person just typed in the URL incorrectly.
For the most part, you can configure your web server to create a customized 404 error page. Some customized 404 error pages include a hero image, witty description, site map, search form, or basic contact information.
Chris, this is a bug of Wix. A custom 404 many times shows elements from their original 404.
I wrote to their support team a while ago and added screenshots as well, but as a reply I received a robotic message: ...please add the URL of the site & page...
That's despite the fact that the URL was included in my original message, + it's page 404 so why they were asking to provide a page name? Go figure. They obviously didn't bother to read my message,
So I didn't continue.
Yeah I figured that was going to happen. Soon I hope they improve the wix code to support universal code, instead of the proprietary blend they have going on.
