Page not found for non-published pages

If checked, pages that are not published return a Page not found error (404) if they are viewed on the live site.

Page not found URL

Specifies a custom page that will be displayed to users who encounter a Page not found error (404 HTTP status code). It can either be a physical aspx file in the web project or a dedicated page created in the site’s content tree.

This value could be used to specify the URL of a physical page file placed in the given location, or select a page with an alias path equal to /SpecialPages/PageNotFound.

The advantage of using a page for this purpose is that you can leverage all features of the portal engine. For instance, you can translate the page not found page on a multilingual website and the system will automatically display the appropriate culture version according to the currently selected language.
