How to Create a Custom 404 Page in WordPress Using Brizy

Updated: October 13, 2020

Every page on a website is accessible via a URL. When you access a certain page via a wrong URL, you will typically see an error message like “page not found” or other similar messages. In a technical language, this type of message is called 404 Error. It is a default error message conveyed by a web server when the page attempted to be accessed by users is not exist. In WordPress, the appearance of the 404 error page is varied, depending on the theme you use. If you don’t like the design of the default 404 error page offered by your theme (or maybe you want to add a certain element), you can create a custom 404 page. Brizy has a feature to do so.

Unlike other page builder plugins such as Elementor, Divi Builder, and Visual Composer, the feature to create a custom 404 page is available on the free version of Brizy so you don’t need to upgrade your Brizy if you don’t need the pro features.

Creating a custom 404 page in WordPress using Brizy

When creating a custom 404 page using Brizy, you can add any element you like. You can also design the 404 as beautiful as possible to make it eye-catching.

To start creating a custom 404 page in WordPress using Brizy, first, go to Brizy -> Templates on your WordPress dashboard. Click the Add New button to create a new template.

Give your template a name and set the display condition. Since you want to create a custom 404 page, assign the template to 404 page. Click the Edit with Brizy button to edit the page with Brizy.

You can edit the page page using the Brizy editor. Again, you can add any element you want. If you are new to Brizy, you can read our previous article to learn how to use Brizy.

Once you are done editing the page, click the arrow button on the bottom-right corner and select Publish Page.

That’s it.

You can try to type a random text after your site domain (i.e. yourdomain.com/kjhfkjj) to test the result.

If the custom 404 error page you created doesn’t work, try to go back to Brizy -> Templates. Hover your mouse over the custom 404 error page and click the Edit link to edit it. Make sure the display condition has been set correctly. If it is hasn’t set correctly yet, simply reset it and click the Update button to apply the change.
