    Default Zencart Errorpage even when not anywhere in Zencart?

    Hey guys,

    I'm a little freaked out / going crazy.

    We have our zencart shop site.

    www.site.com

    with zencart working all good
    then we have a couple of side websites (html mostly) for example

    www.site.com/site2/

    now, im trying to set up a formmail in site2 and when the form tries to parse through the PHP i get the zencart 404 popup.

    Same thing happens if i go to say www.site.com/site2/nonexistingpage.html

    I don't know how to fix this, and do not understand why zencart is intervening in a completely independent website ?

    Help

    ps: I'm using SEO URL's and thought that may have played with it, but even with a blank .htaccess in site2 its still doing it.

    Cheers

    Do you have a specific 404 page in these other sites??

    Might be the reason - - if in folders not exactly independent

    No i dont have specific pages, but i would expect to see the default explorer / mozilla 404 page. That's my point!

    You have probably configured your site to use Zen Cart's page-not-found as your custom 404 page content.

    Hey guys, thanks for the replies.

    Not sure about the zen 404,

    but with the Search URL's, if i remove this portion of code

    Code:
    # All other pages
    # Don't rewrite real files or directories
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f [NC] 
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule ^(.*).html$ index\.php?main_page=$1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
    from root .htaccess it defaults the non ZC sub directories to standard.

    Now to figure out what implications it will have if i remove it!

    You might need that for your seo url's???

    Try a htaccess in the other dir's with rewrite engine off

    in your sub folder whatsoever, put in htacces:

    RewriteEngine Off

    Now, remember that a 404 page default by FF is not very helpful, it doesnt tell the users where to go next. Which is the reason why ppl always build a custom 404 page with sitemap, instructions etc in it

    I guess because you do not really care if that may offend some customers, or maybe because of the nature of the business you are in, where humor is good.

    I have been working with sites where such behaviors may turn people away from the sites and greatly damage the business :)
