The 404 page is a page used to render 404 errors in a website. 404 errors occur when a user stumbles upon a page or content that does not exist within your website. This can occur due to a number of reasons. Some of these include:
- The page or content does not exist
- The page or content has been deleted or moved
- Incorrect URL structure especially if permalinks are not updated
- Server-loading issues
The Stax theme provides an inbuilt 404 template that is rendered once a 404 error is encountered within the website.
Below is a sample display of this template within the theme:
