How can I set custom template for 404 page?

There is always a chance that your users follow a broken link or type a specific address of your website that doesn’t exist. In these cases users will redirect to a famous page called 404 page. 
It tells the users that the page they’re looking for doesn’t exist. 

In Jupiter X, you can create a custom template for 404 page, so that when a 404 error occurs, you can redirect the users to your custom page.

To set a custom template for 404 page, first you have to create a template and second, assign it for the 404 page.

Creating a 404 Template

Creating a 404 template is just like creating other pages in WordPress. All you need to do is:

1. Create a new page from WordPress left menu > Pages > Add New

3.
 You can edit your page with default WordPress editor or to have a highly customized maintenance page, edit it with Elementor.

4. Publish (Update) your page after customize it. Now it’s time to assign your template to the 404 page.
