laravel 404

In this post, I will show you an example of how to create a Laravel 8 404 custom page in your project. If you don't want to use the Laravel 404-page default and want to create a custom page. Then just follow the simple tutorial below.


We know that the 404 page will throw an error page if your user input an existing route or URL to your Laravel 8 application.


Below are the simple steps on how to implement the Laravel 404 custom page.


Step 1: Laravel installation

We must install first our Laravel 8 project for demo purposes only. If you don't have just skip this section. To install the Laravel just run the following command:

composer create-project laravel/laravel laravel-404


Step 2: Create Custom Laravel 404 Error Page

Now we need to create our custom Laravel 404 error page just navigate resources/views/ folder and create a folder called errors folder then create a file called 404.blade.php. Then your blade created will be automatically displayed if the user visits a not existing URL in your project.


Here is our custom Laravel 404 error page blade template. Copy the below code to your 404.blade.php template.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="{{ str_replace('_', '-', app()->getLocale()) }}">

    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
