Error Page Tips
As well as the “something went wrong” text, you should ensure that your error page has the following:
- A link to the site homepage. This is the easiest way for users to bail out.
- A distinctly minimalist look. Avoid putting a lot of content on this page. You should aim to remove distractions. If you know of a section on your site that could produce 404 errors ( such as users having a previous version of the page bookmarked) simply put a link to that section and the homepage on the 404 page.
