Hello, I am using the JM Commune template and noticed on your demo site that your 404 page is giving a 200 header code. This is bad SEO and I am wondering why you did not make this a actual 404 error page. This is how the Joomla documentation explains how to make a custom error page but is technically incorrect. Search engines will not see this as a dead page and it will cause problems. I believe it's easy enough to fix in your code.

This is a fix for this method to actually give a real 404 which is a very good idea.
