Edit 404 page text

Recommended Posts




How can I edit the text on the default 404 page?


It defaults to:


"Sorry, This Page Does not exist"


At the very least, I'd like to correct the capitalisation.

cAn't you JUst delete thE standard 404! and drop in whatever message text you want via a text box?  


Otherwise, I'M not sure where it'S located in the Theme files.

Hi Paul,


As Jmad suggested, the 404 section has next to no options. So if you want to display a custom message, you can simply remove the 404 section and replace it with whatever sections you like and thus create your own custom message. Using either a TextBox, MediaBox etc...

Please search our forums, before posting!

Thanks Danny. Will do.


For those who don't bother to check and stick with the default, it would be good to sort the capitalisation out in a future update.

      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

      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:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      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!
