Hello,
I'm looking for a way to customize the error messages in MOSS.
If a user previously had access to an item but then he doesn't he receives an error.
See attached screenshot.
I would like to display a more user friendly message.
Please advise.
Thanks,

I've had this request before... and while it's possible, it's only possible when a custom dll is performing the logic.

So what I did was to redirect to an error page... and the error page took a message parameter.
My user didn't like the fact that the "Go back to site", wouldn't go back 1 step.

The MS sharepoint dll just Throws an error and that's what's rendered.

Bottom line... too much work for very little benefit.

Hmmm might work... context.EndRequest should handle the "throw"'s...

Please report back if it handles the "No Item Exists" error.
