Additional Summary

Webflow has a built in limitation that blocks you from adding dynamic elements on the native 404 page.

Luckily, there's a straightforward solution to create a custom 404 page in Webflow:

Step 1: Create a New Page

Start by creating a new page in your Webflow project. This page will serve as your customized 404 landing spot.

Step 2: Set the Slug

Give your new page a slug of "/page-not-found." This is the URL visitors will see when encountering a 404 error on your site.

Step 3: Add a Custom Script to your existing 404 page

Open your default 404 page and paste in this code inside <head> tag:


<!-- Redirects to 404 page -->

<script>

window.location.replace("/page-not-found")

</script>

Follow these simple steps to transform your 404 page into a customized space with dynamic content inside of Webflow.
