Jekyll sites include an error page that can be shown to visitors if something goes wrong. In this video, Nate explains how you can customize this error page and add your own content.
- [Instructor] By default new Jekyll sites…contain a file called 404.html.…You can see it if you go to /404.html in your browser.…Some web servers can be configured to point…to this page whenever an error occurs…or a page can't be found.…So visitors will see this page…instead of a confusing error message.…If you'd like you can customize this page…to make it say whatever you want.…To do that switch to the code editor…and find the 404.html file.…
Here you can make whatever changes you want.…Say sorry the page could not be found.…And if the preview server is running…as soon as you refresh you'll see these changes.…Customizing the error page is totally optional…but it can help add some additional polish to your site.…
