Custom Storefront Error Pages

You can create branded custom error pages (technically referred to as a 404 error page) within the storefront. Use custom error pages to provide a helpful message to your customers, with information about what to do next, instead of a generic message like 404 URL not found.

Select Administration > Site Development > Custom Error Pages.

You can upload customized error pages for the following HTTP status errors:
  • Internal Server Error (majorerror.html)
  • URL not found (url_error.html)
  • Timeout (overload.html)
Note: Static resource error pages cannot be customized.

Within Business Manager, you can download a template .zip file containing all error pages that are used in cases where the application server is down or doesn't respond in time. After you download the .zip file, you can customize the content, archive your work, and upload it.

Upload the pages as one .zip file that includes the following:

After your upload, the .zip file is automatically extracted and the content is stored on the web server.
