go to a page in your site that doesn't exist (type in a bad address) or the current 404 page.  Then style.

Thanks for sharing jmad and yeah I usually use the following in the address bar, after my sites URL.

 

omfgwtfbbq

 

So it looks like this:

 

http://my-site.com/omfgwtfbbq

 

This will usually give you a 404 error page which you can then edit, unless you have a page or post called omfgwtfbbq


Please search our forums, before posting!

I'd like to not style my 404 page, but actually add a few lines in Swedish!

 

I'm not finding a php file called 404 so which file is it that I'll need to edit?

 

Or can I create my own 404 file with a trigger in it so that this page opens instead?? (This would be more convenient as it wouldn't be affected by theme updates!)

 

Thanks!

Just go to a 404 page and edit like any other DMS page using the front-end editor.  Super simple.

I've tried that, only issue is, sure I can add stuff but not edit the existing 404 template. There are a few lines in English there that I want to translate to Swedish :)

This issue still doesn't seem to be answered, how do you create a custom 404 page, editing the text to whatever you want?

yes.

Pretty simple, go to a 404 page, remove the default 404 section, replace it with a textbox or whatever with whatever content you want in whatever language you want.

Oh I know how to do that. I just was answering the poster meaning "Yes, just go and replace the text just like Danny and your own question said".

This isn't working for me, this is what I see, before any editable sections, I get a WP_Query Object code

Can someone help me get this figured out?

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      Hello,
      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
