There are many ways to customize these pages for example you can customize by code by creating a feature at web application scope or you can do it by power shell so let’s see the simple way.
First create three pages and place them in this path
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\1033\
Note: if you have multilingual site you need to place these pages in their language folder for example for Arabic
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\1025\
Second Open SharePoint 2010 Management Shell with Farm Administrator User
Now For Custom page Not Found runs the following Power Shell:
$webApp = Get-SPWebApplication http://test $webApp.FileNotFoundPage = “Custom_NotFound.html” $webApp.Update()
For Custom Error Page, Access Denied page,.. All pages listed in the below image
Run the following Power Shell:
$webApp = Get-SPWebApplication http://test$webApp.UpdateMappedPage([Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPWebApplication+SPCustomPage]::Error,"/_layouts/1033/Custom_Error.html") $webApp.Update()
simple and usefull method, thank you Fadi
Is there a way to do customize the Access Denied and PageNotFound pages WITHOUT access to the server?
Hi Keith ,
I don't think so because this method only available at farm level (No sandbox solution) also you can refer this URL :
For hints on doing this in SharePoint 2013, see my blog: spsawyer.wordpress.com/.../sharepoint-2013-custom-layouts-pages-and-custom-mapped-pages.
UpdateMappedPage now has an overload that takes a CompatibilityLevel value. :)
