is it possible for 404s to be handled without changing the url? I would like to show my cusom 404 error page, but instead of leaving the url as it is, it redirects it to /my404.aspx?aspxerrorpath=/whateverpage.aspx.
the reason I'm asking is because google has a snippet you can place on your page to enable "did you mean xxx" kind of behavior, but since every page ends up being my404.aspx, that's all it looks for.
this is additionally complicated by the fact that I need my404.aspx page to load because it has code to send me an email if a page is not found so that I can fix broken links...
the need for this would be eliminated if the sf404 page could include report/log functionality with an automated email, as well as being able to be customized to fit the site template/theme, because the sf404 doesn't change the url, but instead throws the generic 404 error page...
i hope I made sense in this post as it's friday and i'm ready to go home. thanks for listening!
