Pagekit is a great CMS that even cares about your exceptions and errors. And if there's a 404 (page not found) error, Pagekit generates a little message, which tells the user, that this page does not exist.
If you would like to redirect all these errors or output your own custom HTML, you are invited to use this extension. You can also add targets to redirect requests from old link structures and even add statistics.

If you would like to disable the handling for specific file extensions or URLs, you may switch over to the next menu item.
