Create custom error page in Laravel 8

Hello friends,

Laravel provides with default all errors page out of the box. So when you create your website, you want to change the view for error 404, server error page with your custom website page. You want to add suggestion or links in the 404 page.

In this tutorial, we will going to create custom 404 page. So lets get started.

First of create errors directory in resources/views. In this directory, create blade file 404.blade.php and put your custom page HTML code here.

    <div class="container">
        <div class="col-12">
            <h1 class="heading">Page not found</h1>
            <img src="{{ assets('404.png') }}" class="img-responsive">
            <p class="lead">Oops! You broke the Internet.</p>
            <p>It looks like you are lost. But don't worry, you can always navigate to <a href="{{ url('/') }}">Homepage</a> or return back.

Now go through any non route path to open 404 page. You can see the current page is displaying in 404 page.

Laravel logic for error pages is, if you have any blade views inside resources/views/errors directory, than it returns else Laravel default view loads. So if you want to change default server error(500) page, create blade file, resources/views/errors/500.blade.php and in your .env file set APP_DEBUG=false.

It will return that view whenever server error occurs.
