#153175 Problems assigning the 404 page
admin-de197f91 1 month, 2 weeks ago
Dear Artbees support, I did exactly what you described in your tutorial of how to set up a 404 page. In the customizer I can select the page I created with Elementor and assign it, but testing its functionality shows another page I didn’t select. Problem might be that the title form of my 404 page is 404-2 and it’s not possible to change it to 404 (though there’s no other page with title form 404).
Could you please help me with this?
Thanks. ClausAmir Rather Support Team 1 month, 2 weeks ago
The reason is WordPress doesn’t allow pages or posts with a numeric permalink, that’s why it makes the permalink for your 404 page as 404-2. It’s default WordPress behavior, you can test it yourself, for example, by creating a page with the title 123 and WordPress will make it 123-2.
In this case, I’d recommend you to create your custom 404 page with a different name, for example, Error-404.
