Anyone else unable to get custom 404 to work, when you are a logged in backend user after upgrading to 5.4?
If I browse a page that doesn't exist, I get the custom 404. If I log into the backend and then browse the same page, I get the default IIS 404 page.
Confirmed the behavior in Fiddler, the only difference in the request are the cookies. Once request generates a 302 redirect to the custom page, the one where I'm logged in, generates a 404 response
Is this by design?
Well, if I do what you described it works fine for me. My site has also been upgraded to 5.4 and it has a custom 404 page. I hope Support can help you out!
Is your site on IIS6 or 7?
I'm running the site locally on Windows 7 and IIS 7.5.
Yeah, it works for me locally on 7 also. I should have clarified that the issue is on IIS, and its not just specific to one sites. It's across 2-3 sites that I tested
We have a bug logged recently when it comes to IIS6 and custom errors on Sitefinity 5.4:
What I would suggest you ( if you use IIS 6 and encounter the problem ) would be to switch to IIS 7+, until the problem is fixed. If you are not using IIS6, let us know.
