How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

Tenancy level custom 404 pages

Where a deep-link to a location in a Tenancy is malformed and produces a 404 error (such as http://resourcelists.ntu.ac.uk/modules/snbx/lists) Aspire you not present a generic 404 dead-end but a custom 404 capture page - including navigation options and links and the ability to report the error.

    As long as the search box is presented within the basic customised Tenancy look-and-feel (with its navigation options), that would be fine, I think. The option to to have a 'Tell us about this broken link...' function would be good. Maybe also worth thinking about occasional 404 page request reporting for Tenancy Admins from your web logs (e.g 'These were the duff page requests for your Tenancy; these are the URLs they came from...)?

    Hi Richard,

    The development team agree - this is on their to-do board along with a load of other small (and mostly non-functional) improvements.

    Perhaps a search box would be a better thing to present the user with if they stumble upon a 404 page?

    Thanks,

    Chris
