Create your custom 404 Page as a normal WordPress Page using the full power of WordPress. You can use a Custom Page Template or Custom Fields, you can set a Featured Image - everything like on every other Page. Then go to 'Appearance' -> '404 Error Page' from your WordPress Dashbord and select the created Page as your 404 error page. That's it!

Why you should choose this plugin

  • Different from other similar plugins the 404page plugin does not create redirects. That’s quite important because a correct code 404 is delivered which tells search engines that the page does not exist and has to be removed from the index. A redirect would result in a HTTP code 301 or 302 and the URL would remain in the search index.
  • Different from other similar plugins the 404page plugin does not create additional server requests.


The 404page Plugin uses GlotPress - the wordpress.org Translation System - for translations. Translations can be submitted at translate.wordpress.org.

Translation are highly appreciated. It would be great if you'd support the 404page Plugin by adding a new translation or keeping an existing one up to date. If you're new to GlotPress take a look at the Translator Handbook.
