What is a 404 page?
If someone visits a link that is no longer valid for your site the browser will show a 404 Not Found error. It's helpful to customize that error page so that you can point the visitor to try another page of your site like your homepage.
- Two 404 page designs are required for a design.
- One regular page and one blog template.
- Follow steps below:
Custom 404 Page
Did you know it's as easy as naming the page "404"?
Simply create a new page and name it exactly "404" as shown in the screenshot below. When published it will automatically be used as the 404 error page if someone goes to a link that's not valid for your site. This would apply to users without a blog.
Required page name: 404 (exactly)
Custom 404 Design for the Blog
Once you have a 404 page designed as a regular Showit page blog users will also need to duplicate it for Wordpress and set it as a 404 Wordpress Template. Follow the screenshot steps below.
Suggested blog template name: Blog 404
