Customizing Your 404 Not Found Page

Customizing Your 404 Not Found Page

For all sites, we have a default 404 Not Found page that is very simple and takes its aesthetic from what you've already set up in your site's Global Settings.


Example:

But let's say you want to customize this simple layout, and maybe even monetize it. (Go you!) Here are the steps to get this done:

1. Go to the Layout & Design tool in the left-hand navigation menu.

2. Choose the 404 page.

The New York Times, a frequent showpiece example of the power of paywalls, is constantly reporting record-busting subscription numbers, with 7.6 million digital subscriptions in 2021.

And it all makes perfect sense. The subscription model eliminates the middleman — such as the platforms — so readers get the experience and content they want, and publishers get the cash they need.
