A custom page not found is a page which is used to replace any post or page if by chance if it is deleted or internet is broken. Why Custom Page Not Found Is Necessary? First of all, You must Imagine what do you do after you just complete your content? You just post it, right? For some amateurs and newbies it maybe yes; but once you’re a learner or a great blogger, you feel like you need to share it. Then you crawl on social media (maximum on facebook, instagram and twitter) for sharing your content. (I’ll discuss about sharing your posts later on, I’m not currently talking about it.). Suppose you’ve shared your content on those sites, but later on you delete that post for any reason, the link you shared is not erased automatically from your social media accounts. What will happen when people will click on the link to reach your blog. Your blog will show a default error message which is a limitation of your blog; it’s not appreciable. This invites the necessity of a Custom page not found. How Can I Take The Maximum Benefit Of Custom Page Not Found?
