We have a redirect page that kicks in on 404 errors. Can we redirect users to the same page when other errors happen? (500 errors, 302, etc...?)

If yes... How?

hmm but the very first paragraph of the link you sent (which I had already visited) says that you cannot create custom... on errors <list of error codes>

am I missing something?

Oh okay sorry i was a little confused on your question then. Try taking a look at this. Sorry i am not a expert on this but did find a page of people discussing this. Sorry i can't be more help on this i was thinking you just wanted a custom error page for general errors.

Your error handling strategy should handle HTTP and exception errors. M$ provides this example "Complete Example for Error Handlers" that shows how to handle error codes (web config changes customErrors node) and  handle exceptions at page and global level.

@Sean: The customErrors node at web config is the best place to implement these changes as shown here.
