I have been searching high and low for a WordPress Plugin that would easily generate a 404 page for :me: since I am stupid and don’t know how to make one from scratch (yet. I gotta be optimistic here). Sure, I would love a creative and funny 404 page like this one but I know that’ll have to wait. I have tried and tested several plugins on my site already, but either they were too hard to configure for a moron like I am or they look like :poo:
After much :nailbite: and reading, I landed on Andrew Ferguson‘s page and boy was I awfully 🙂 that I found him. He made an :thumbsup: 404 design especially for dummies like me, which you can download here. He calls it a Dunstan-style Error Page, since the design was adapted from Dunstan Orchard’s own error page. You can see my own 404 page here that I made from Ferguson’s excellent tutorial.
Hey, if I can do it, so can you, right? I mean I’m ignoramus extraordinaire when it comes to these things, so worry not. Whatever I can do, you can do better/easier. If you don’t have a 404 page yet and don’t have a clue where to start, head on to Ferguson’s page and you’ll have your very own 404 in no time. I’ve read in dozens of sites that a well-designed and informative 404 page is important in retaining your site readers, so it’s wise to make one now than run the risk of losing readership on your website.
Oh. Before I float away to lalaland, I am accepting link exchanges for this site already. Contact me through leaving a comment, or emailing me, or whatever. Just lemme know so I can include you in my list 😉
