Is there a way to customize the 404 Page Not Found? Is there a way to customize the link for the 404 Page?
I’m part of a blog circle and when I post the link for the blog before its published, it looks like its a weird version of my logo (white on white in this case) and just says page not found. I’d like it to have more information or at least look “pretty”.
I’m attaching two screenshots, one is when the unpublished page or post’s link is put on Facebook. I’d like to be able to change the icon as well as what the 404 information says. This is what I’d ideally like to have the ability to customize.
The other screenshot is of the 404 page on the website. It functions and looks fine, just could use a little pizzazz.
Facebook uses the title meta tag, and page not found is the standard meta tag for a 404 error. It uses also the only image that it founds in the page, your logo. It’s white, so it looks weirds on a white background.
You can customize that page changing the 404.php file in the theme directory, adding an image to choose when you publish your post on Facebook, for example.
You can change the title tag using this code snippet in your functions.php:
