Why can't we create a proper 404 page.

Team, please check a few sources:
https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/93641?hl=en
https://alistapart.com/article/perfect404

Now I can't:
- add a search box
- add the standard header/footer
- the logo of my company
- a proper explanation why somebody encounters the 404 page
- etc.

What is wrong with a 404 page like this:
- https://www.airbnb.nl/awefsfdads
- https://www.lego.com/nl-nl/a34esrf

These are not blanc pages, but containing the header and footer + extra text.

With Themler I can't create this as a 404 page.
But I can create this (easily) as a normal page, why this difference????

Please help, think a lot of us are waiting for a better 404 page since 2015..

I have asked about this before. I just add a couple sections to the page to make it look good and call it a day.

Put a link to the sitemap front and center then add your search to that page.

I know what i can do now, but that is not good enough..

Copy some section, while you easily should be able to repeat header/footer and other parts of the template (left, right, top, bottom, etc.)

Hope to hear more soon..

Hi,

Unfortunately Themler does not support inserting php controls as well as Header, Footer and Sidebars on the 404 template in joomla themes. You an insert static html controls only (Image, icon, Text, etc).

Thank you,
Olivia
