Custom Error Pages

Create custom 401 and 403 error pages with any WordPress theme without writing a single line of code, set it up and forget it.

  1. Install and activate the custom error pages plugin.
  2. From the wp-admin go to Settings > Custom Error Pages, fill in the heading and content boxes, save the changes and preview it.
  3. Configure your web server to use a custom error page.

Apache users edit your .htaccess file and add the following lines.

ErrorDocument 403 /index.php?status=403
ErrorDocument 401 /index.php?status=401

Nginx users edit your nginx.conf file and add the following lines.

error_page  403 = /index.php?status=403
error_page  401 = /index.php?status=401

Try accessing a file or directory which is forbidden like

http://www.example.com/.htaccess

http://www.example.com/wp-includes/

Did you see a custom 403 page in all the glory of your theme?
