We offer free tips and suggestions for various web builders.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to create a custom 404 page for your Wix website. Creating a custom 404 Error page means that when a visitor mispells or lands on a page that no longer exists for your website - they will have a better chance of staying on your website. As a business owner, you want your visitor to quickly and easily find their way back to your services, gallery, home or contact information.
Follow the steps below to create your own custom 404 error page. Keep in mind, you must have a Premium Wix Plan to accomplish this.
1. First, open your Wix Editor.
2. Click Settings on the bar at the top of your Editor.
3. Click, "Error Page (404)."
4. Click Get Started.
The 404 error page previously hidden from your editor dashboard is now available for you to edit. This page will not be shown on your website's menu.
Optional: At this point you can publish your site or you can continue customizing by changing the text, wording, colors or the vector art. Keep in mind, only Vector art is available for this page.
Consider adding quick links to pages or popular blog posts on your site. This is also a great place to link to areas visitors might be looking for. Remember the 404 page helps minimize the chance a visitor leaves your site after receiving an error message.
