Description
For invalid Tiki URLs ending in .php (or .html, etc.), instead of a nice 404-type message, there is this: "No route found. Please see http://dev.tiki.org/url+Rewriting+Revamp". This is ok for a dev site (looks like a message to a developer), but isn't appropriate for a production site. In Tiki 13, there is something a little familiar, though not very nice: "404 Not Found - nginx". Is there some way to have a nice, styled page, that looks like part of the site and not a server message?
Solution
Ideally the page-not-found message page would look like part of the site, would use the site's theme, etc. and could have content editable by the site staff, probably including the branding, a search form, a site map, etc.
Workaround

There is a workaround to prevent this from happening, I found out a few days ago:
Go to Control Panels > General > Tab Navigation
Deselect the parameter "On permission denied, display login module''
Edit parameter Send to URL /login

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
