Specifying a 404 Page

I hate the default, unstyled 404 page that Jekyll provides. So, I made some placeholders for you to use. Just set one in the _config.yml file and you’re good to go.

jekyllfaces:

  # One of: sticky | badge | dog | droids | glass | 
  #         link | milk | monster | potty | shrug | 
  #         tweet | zork
  
  404_page: sticky # show the yellow sticky note
  
  ...

The following examples are rendered just as the 404 page of the same name would be.

Nom! Nom! Nom!

Uh oh! The page you requested has been eaten by the 404 monster.
