Rewrite and 404 redirect

Nov 25, 2011 at 8:29 AM

I had enabled custom errors in the web.config to redirect to a page I created as a content (ex : /pagenotfound).

But since I  activated the rewrite module, the urls that don't exist returns a 404 Server Error.

Has anyone figured out a fix for this?   The behavior I'm seeing is that with the Rewrite Rules module enabled, I don't get the friendly Orchard 404 page, instead I get the IIS 404 page which is very stark.

I see this same behavior. Does anyone have an idea how to resolve this?

Saw a solution in the issue tracker here.  Adding the theme attribute to the HomeController RewriteAction fixes the issue.


public class HomeController : Controller {
        public ActionResult Rewrite(string path) {
            return new HttpNotFoundResult();

Adding the themed attribute works for the default site in a multi tenancy but does not appear to work for any of the tennants. Does anybody have any ideas?

Problem solved - Bertrand's Vandelay Fail module to the rescue.
