I have a question regarding when making a "page not found" page on your website.
How can I make sure a page doesn't carry the variable that's being got from page to page? Meaning if a user/visitor types something into my URL, how do I make sure that word or key-phrase they type-in doesn't appear on the page itself and make sure they get presented with a "Page Not Found"?
If I type in "whatever" at the end of the URL I get presented with a "Page not found" page and the key-phrase "whatever" dosen't appear on edmunds.com website. How would I make this happen with my website? What do I need to do?
You don't need to. Either Apache finds the page to serve or it doesn't. If it doesn't, you tell it you have custom error pages in .htaccess with, for example:
ErrorDocument 403 /errors/error403.php
ErrorDocument 404 /errors/error404.php
ErrorDocument 406 /errors/error406.php
ErrorDocument 500 /errors/error500.html
