|Creating Customized Strategi Error Messages|
The Resources area of a Strategi website is unique from other areas of your website. Resources is updated with every Strategi upgrade, whereas other areas of your website will remain untouched by the upgrade. Since the Resources area will be overwritten whenever an upgrade is performed, it is important not to modify any documents, web pages, etc. in the Resources website.
It is quite reasonable, however, to wish to customize the Strategi error pages served out of the Resources website.
When an error page is about to be served, Strategi will look in the current zone for the error page. If it doesn't find it (i.e., no '/messages' subdirectory exists), Strategi will move up to the website level and look for a zone with a subdirectory of '/messages'. If the message it's looking for is not found within that website, it will serve the unmodified error page out of the Resources website.
Note: If you create a '/messages' directory within a zone, but do not copy all the messages to that zone, the missing error message will be served out of the Resources website regardless of whether a zone with subdirectory '/messages' exists within the website.
For purpose of this document, we will assume that DEFAULT refers to the website that you wish to copy these files into.The instructions below detail how to make a copy of the Resources website MESSAGES zone.
To begin customizing your copies of the RESOURCES website MESSAGES documents, go back to Webmaster and CHECK OUT your new “/messages” zone in your DEFAULT website.
If you decide to create a "messages" directory within an individual zone, you will need to do the following:
