    Is is possible to get a template 404 page working like in standalone wordpress?

    any 404 right now is redirected to the wp-signup.php page. I would like to have my own 404 template and display different information with a link to the signup page. I have the 404.php template file uploaded, but its ignored.

    Is this possible in MU?

    Yes, just create 404.php's in with your themes. Same method as regular wordpress.

    hmmm... that's what I did, but it doesnt go to the 404.php file. It always just redirects to the wp-signup.php file. Wonder if it's because I set up the installation as subdirectories?

    argh... the 404.php template works, but for only pages that come after the /blog/xxx part of the url...

    for any bad urls that occur in the subdirectory space (ie instead of /blog) it either goes to the signup page or the very unfriendly page not found error for .php urls...

    definitely, not desireable... wonder if the remove /blog hack will fix this too...
