Hello, I made a custom 404 page using Yootheme builder. I made it as a single article and made a menu item for it.

Is there any way I can use this article as my 404 page in the sh404sef "plugin"? I would like to use different 404 pages for different languages so it would be easy to do within the sh404sef plugin.

I found the "Itemid to use for 404 page" thought that would do the trick, but it didnt.

sh404SEF let's you design and build per language 404 error page already so there's no need to do that. You have one tab per language on the "Error page" settings.

We stopped using articles to handle error page a long time ago because those articles are usually found by search engines (through RSS feeds, search, etc). They are also often displayed to your users by Joomla when doing a search. This is definitely not recommended.

Note that you are on public forum, where we can only reply to pre-sale questions.

Thanks and regards
