Use a Custom 404 Page¶
You can replace the default 404 page that MongoDB Realm displays when a user tries to
access a resource that does not exist with a custom HTML document. You
can specify this custom 404 page from the Realm UI or by importing an application configuration
directory that includes the page in its
hosting directory. Select
the tab below that corresponds to the method you want to use.
Create a Custom 404 Page File¶
You can use any hosted file as your custom 404 page. It's common to use an HTML file that incorporates the following elements:
- A short message indicating the error, e.g. "This page does not exist."
- Alternative links or options for the user to continue navigating.
Configure the 404 Resource Path in Realm¶
Once you have successfully uploaded the 404 file, all that's left is to configure Realm to serve that file instead of the default 404 page.
- On the Hosting page, click the Settings tab.
- Under Custom 404 Page, click Choose File.
- Select your custom 404 file from the list.
- Click Save.
Once you have updated the Hosting configuration, Realm will begin serving your custom file instead of the default 404 page.
