Set up a custom 404 page


Best Answer Simon_P , 07 February 2013 - 08:44 PM

I also read the forum topic on pagelines: content box section. But after download the "zip" file, I don't know what to do with this file?

unzip the file, and upload the folder to wp-content/plugins/pagelines-sections/ using an FTP client.

Step 1: In my back-end i follow this steps:
Pagelines > Themeplates > 404 > Drag & Drop Themplate setup > Drag the Content, and drop it to the 404 Error themeplate. Just like this printscreen:

The easiest way would be to use ContentBox. Please follow the instructions for ContentBox here:

Thanks a lot!

This works great!
 

Another question. Can I get my "normal" page lay-out for the content box section?

 

There is now text in my 404 page ("Test), but in another lay-out. 

Check my custom 404 page here:

Hopefully you have something for this?

Hi, you can add all available sections to the 404 page, but I'm unclear what you want to do when you say:

What do you mean "normal" page lay-out for the content box section?   Apologies, but I may be misunderstanding your intent or question.

Hi Rob! Sorry for my english ;).

 

I found it myself.... i think! What I mean is: 

When you use the "Content Box section", you don't have your normal "design", but only your tekst, with no background, blocks and things like that.

 

I have add the follow html code, wich I random copied from my website html code.


<section id="postloop" class="copy section-postloop">

 

I add some text here, so it looks like this:

</section>

 

 

Are there any problems when use this html code? Is this the best solution?

 

 

Thanks a lot people!

 

Rowin.

Hi,

 

I'm not sure you should use any class for the postloop in the content box. 

 

Your English is fine. I just didn't understand the context of your question.

 

You can try it, of course.  Let's hope it works!

Hi there!

 

It works for now. Maby an other option is better? 

 

Probably I can use the same html/css as another websitepage, so the page is in the same design? Where I can find this html/css? 

Now I use the postloop, because I automatic use this html/css. For an example

I have an old expression.  "If it works; it works and that's good."

 

It looks very nice!
