I wonder, how would i set up the url helper so that when is requested, and /something/ does not exist as a controller or anything, a default/specific controller would handle those requests?

thanks in advance,

You can't use the URL helper for that. But one way of doing it would be adding the route

$route[':any/:any'] = "defaultcontrollername/defaultmethodname";

That would route any request to your defaultcontroller. But additionally you would have to add routes for your other controllers.

$route['news(.*)'] = "news$1";
$route['pies(.*)'] = "pies$1";
$route['forum(.*)'] = "forum$1";

And so forth. (By the way I haven't tested this, it's just from the top of my head, so it might not work).

EDIT: It's important that the :any/:any route is at the END of your routes config file, otherwise the defaultcontroller will always be called.

That's a really bad idea, you should never do that.

Instead you could modify the exception class to handle the errors your own way, try this implementation
