How to Create a Custom 404 Page for Genesis

A 404 error page is displayed whenever the page or post you are trying to access on a website is unavailable. For your website developed with Genesis framework, a 404 error page by default displays a page filled with content which includes pages, categories, authors, archieves and your most recent posts. Now this 404 error page is mandatory for any website and instead of having a default one, you can easily create a customized 404 page.

  • Before you get started make a copy of your default 404.php which is being located at the root folder of Genesis.
  • Now open the file and customize it as per your need. You can set your custom Heading, message and add images to the page.
  • After you are done with your customizations, don’t forget to save your changes and upload the file into your theme folder.

Your custom 404 page will now be displayed when an user encounters a 404 error on your website.
