Custom 404 Error Pages
It would be great to be able to design our own custom error pages (called 404 pages) when someone navigates to a page on our website that has been removed or doesn't exist - instead of the standard webydo branded 404 "page not found" page it would be nice to have our own.
You can now fully customize your own 404 Error page.
Tip: Design an appealing message on your 404 page so visitors will understand what happened and what they can do next.
You can see ours here.
How to work it?
- For new sites: When you create a new site, a “404 Error page” will be part of your page list so you’ll be able to fully design it just like any other page.
- For existing sites: In your Studio’s “Pages” menu, create a new page and make sure that the URL property is set to www.yoursite.com/404.html

Will check it out Alana, thank you.

This is essential to not lose a current visitor due to a broken page.

hey Webydo People, this is a request that's been around for a year.... I'd have thought it would be a must!!!
Anna - Webydo Support Manager commented
We are working ******* completing the white - labeling options in Webydo.
For now we have cleared the 404 page of any Webydo branding and it's a non- branded page, not interfering with your custom branding.
Please keep the great ideas coming.
An absolute must! A make or break feature in determining if I stick around.

good point, is NOT professional to have a 404 error page that says other name than the domain you are on, i check this 404 error page on a pro-site in my account and its really need to change to personal error pages for every site created.

Ha. I tried to look at this page but got a 404 error.
I like the idea and would love to be able to use this feature
I love this idea! It's so funny when someone's 404 page offers a custom graphic. Keeps you interested in the site even if you're not in the right place!
This is imperative. I need to have custom 404 pages so when people are trying to access an old page from an old site they will at least see a new page (404) at the new site.
