404-O-Thon : Create an Awesome Website Error Page

Free Makerspace Event

2 July 2014 from 6:30pm to 9pm

Currently in read only mode, sorry about that, please try again in a few hours.

Light duty workshop where we will all create a creative 404 error page to replace the ugly standard page that came with your hosting account or CMS. If you want to know what your current 404 page looks like just add a bogus file name to your primary URL such as:

We will do a little Photoshop, HTML and CSS here.

For inspiration use a search engine of preference for something such as "Awesome 404 pages" or "Creative 404 pages".

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/404...:
"The 404 or Not Found error message is a HTTP standard response code indicating that the clientwas able to communicate with a given server, but the server could not find what was requested.

The web site hosting server will typically generate a "404 Not Found" web page when a user attempts to follow a broken or dead link; hence the 404 error is one of the most recognizable errors users can find on the web."

Bring your laptop and hosting login information.
