Dynamic ErrorPages

Im currently trying to work out how to have dynamic ErrorPages in SS.

- What I would like is to be able, upon access restrictions, to send 403 to the browser and show a page with a dynamic message.

- Problem right now is first of all, that when I create an ErrorPage in CMS and set errorcode to 403 the created page in assets-folder is zero kb == empty !!
With a static errorpage I couldn't set custom errormessages like: "you are not allowed in this specific section".

How are you dealing with 403 errors?

Perhaps Im all wrong with this approach... So let me try to clarify my needs a bit, perhaps someone knows about a work around.

1. First an anonymous user tries to access a secure page.
2. The user gets redirected to the loginpage and logs in.
3. User still has no access to the page and 403 is sent to the browser - with a little message (ALREADYLOGGEDIN).

- What I would like to do is to be able to show a real page, instead of just the error message, to the user.
I have tried creating an Error Page with error code 403, but the created page in assets is empty - and still if I put text in that page it never gets displayed.

Hope this helps...

Status so far...

The only way I've been able to actually display the 403 page (static page from assets-folder) is via allowed actions like this:

public static $allowed_actions = array(
"index" => "->returnsFalse"

Any help is appreciated!
