You can enable maintenance mode, however this is not the same as a 404, but it works.

May I ask why you want a 404?

It will help users when they can't find a page


However when there's a faulty URL it just redirects to home

A page simply displaying 404 error code most likely will not help people find their way around the forums.
All codes I make are tested on the latest version of Google Chrome and upon request of other browsers.

That's right, it'll just cause more confusion.

I meant if you would be able to customize it, like for example return to home page, search, etc.

That's what already happens if someone types in a non working link.
