Custom Error Pages

We have error pages that are standard and served for all sites on WordPress.com, and as a VIP customer you can override these defaults and specify your own custom error pages instead.

Setting it up is simple: all you need to do is add a custom error page (a simple HTML file) to your theme.

The file needs to be located in a folder called “error-docs” and named “error-page.html”. Note that the file can only contain HTML and basic inline or remote-hosted CSS and Javascript.

I.e., from the root of your theme: ~/error-docs/error-page.html

Once you’ve committed the file to your theme, you’ll need to open a ticket with our team to notify us, so we can make some associated configuration changes on our end.
