Custom 404 page problem...

Post by vaghar123@gmail.com »

So I have been setting up the 404 page, and I am trying to upload a custom image to it... But whenever I put it there it does not show up right.

Heres the code I am using:
<img src="{T_THEME_PATH}/images/404pic1.jpg">

It just appears like a blue question mark...

Any chance you would know what wrong?

phpBB template variables are not parsed in pages that are external to phpBB.

I think your best bet would be to do it this way. This is the way I did it and achieved a great custom 404 error page. my 404 page for reference.

First create the php file. Name this file 404.php

Code: Select all

    <?php
    define('IN_PHPBB', true);
    $phpbb_root_path = (defined('PHPBB_ROOT_PATH')) ? PHPBB_ROOT_PATH : './';
    $phpEx = substr(strrchr(__FILE__, '.'), 1);
    include($phpbb_root_path . 'common.' . $phpEx);

    // Start session management
    $user->session_begin();
    $auth->acl($user->data);
    $user->setup();

    page_header('404 Error');

    $template->set_filenames(array(
        'body' => 404.html',
    ));

    make_jumpbox(append_sid("{$phpbb_root_path}viewforum.$phpEx"));
    page_footer();
    ?>
Save this file to the root of your phpbb installation.

Next you will make the actual html page.

Make a new page and name it 404.html

Code: Select all

    <!-- INCLUDE overall_header.html -->

    <h2>404 Error</h2>

    <div class="panel">
       <div class="inner"><span class="corners-top"><span></span></span>

       <div class="content">
          <p>
            <img src="yourstyle/theme/images/404pic1.jpg"> 
          </p>
       </div>

       <span class="corners-bottom"><span></span></span></div>
    </div>

    <!-- INCLUDE jumpbox.html -->
    <!-- INCLUDE overall_footer.html -->
Save and upload to yourstyle/template.

This should work. If the image code doesn't work use the direct path for it as in. http://yourdomain/styles/theme/images/404pic1.jpg

Hope this works for you.

You may need to take out all the whitespace before the <?php and after the ?>

you are trying to combine making a new phpbb page with using your hosting control panel to create a 404.shtml file.

in your 404.shtml file you are using the phpbb variables and that won't work because you are not using a phpbb php file at all.

you need to do what he said.

create your php file and rename your shtml file to html

then, you will need to go to your hosting control panel and point your server to your custom error page.


also you need to change this line:
<img src="SE_Gamer/theme/images/404pic1.jpg">

to

<img src="{T_THEME_PATH}/images/404pic1.jpg">

or,
if you want to use the shtml file you need to not use phpbb paths and varibles because they will not work.
