How to redirect anonymous to your great 404 page in Tiki

Author: Bernard Sfez - Published

For another member of the Tiki community I did a quick video to answer his question : How do you redirect to a more "Jedi" 404 (that’s was his words ;)) ?

I answered doing this quick video and then I was asked to share it, and someone else ask something else and did a second video and so on. I’m not sure exactly where it will go but I’ll publish those quick video without too much of editing. And that’s ok if I don't get an "Oscar" for this. To be true I’m thinking seriously about doing tutorials and this is may the start.
