This article was last updated on the December 22, 2016.

Extensions are X specific plugins available for download for all customers with a validated purchase of X. You can easily download and manage all of your Extensions directly from the WordPress admin area under Addons > Extensions. This article covers documentation for the Custom 404 Extension and goes into detail on certain features where needed.

Enabling the Extension

After installing and activating Custom 404 you’ll find its settings page underneath the Addons menu.

Custom 404 settings

From the main Custom 404 settings screen you can choose to disable or enable the plugin as needed:

Custom 404 Enable Or Disable?

Disabling the plugin will effectively turn off all output from the plugin (e.g. HTML, CSS, JavaScript etc). This is useful as a quick way to toggle activity if you ever need without having to go through the Plugins menu and worry about activating/deactivating it completely. This way you can work with and manage all of your X specific functionality from one centralized place under the Addons section.

Selecting the enable checkbox will bring up the Settings meta box below. This is where you will adjust any options for the plugin and input your data as needed.

What Custom 404 does

Custom 404 allows you to set any page on your WordPress website as your 404 page. Rather than your visitors seeing the default 404 page they’ll see your completely custom 404 page which you can even create with Cornerstone! You can see some examples of Custom 404 in action over on our demo site for the plugin.

Configuring Custom 404

The settings for Custom 404 couldn’t be simpler, pick your page from the dropdown, click on the update button to save your selection and you’ve successfully configured Custom 404!
