    I used the following code and pasted it into code snippet to create a custom 404 page. It worked yesterday when I first created it. But now, the custom message no longer seems to be there. Wondering what could’ve happened?

    add_filter( 'generate_404_title','generate_custom_404_title' );
    function generate_custom_404_title()
    {
          return 'Ruh roh!';
    }
    
    add_filter( 'generate_404_text','generate_custom_404_text' );
    function generate_custom_404_text()
    {
          return 'Looks like ya done goofed! Try searching again.';
    }

    That’s strange – try this instead:

    add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'tu_change_404_stuff' );
    function tu_change_404_stuff() {
        add_filter( 'generate_404_title', 'tu_custom_404_title' );
        add_filter( 'generate_404_text', 'tu_custom_404_text' );
    }
    
    function tu_custom_404_title() {
        return 'Ruh roh!';
    }
    
    function tu_custom_404_text() {
        return 'Looks like ya done goofed! Try searching again.';
    }

    That didn’t seem to work with Code Snippets either. Not sure if something is broken. I looked at the 404.php file, here’s the code

    
    <?php
    /**
     * The template for displaying 404 pages (Not Found).
     *
     * @package GeneratePress
     */
    
    if ( ! defined( 'ABSPATH' ) ) {
    	exit; // Exit if accessed directly.
    }
    
    get_header(); ?>
    
    	<div id="primary" <?php generate_content_class(); ?>>
    		<main id="main" <?php generate_main_class(); ?>>
    			<?php
    			/**
    			 * generate_before_main_content hook.
    			 *
    			 * @since 0.1
    			 */
    			do_action( 'generate_before_main_content' );
    			?>
    
    			<div class="inside-article">
    
    				<?php
    				/**
    				 * generate_before_content hook.
    				 *
    				 * @since 0.1
    				 *
    				 * @hooked generate_featured_page_header_inside_single - 10
    				 */
    				do_action( 'generate_before_content' );
    				?>
    
    				<header class="entry-header">
    					<h1 class="entry-title" itemprop="headline"><?php echo apply_filters( 'generate_404_title', __( 'Oops! That page can&rsquo;t be found.', 'generatepress' ) ); // WPCS: XSS OK. ?></h1>
    				</header><!-- .entry-header -->
    
    				<?php
    				/**
    				 * generate_after_entry_header hook.
    				 *
    				 * @since 0.1
    				 *
    				 * @hooked generate_post_image - 10
    				 */
    				do_action( 'generate_after_entry_header' );
    				?>
    
    				<div class="entry-content" itemprop="text">
    					<?php
    					echo '<p>' . apply_filters( 'generate_404_text', __( 'It looks like nothing was found at this location. Maybe try searching?', 'generatepress' ) ) . '</p>'; // WPCS: XSS OK.
    
    					get_search_form();
    					?>
    				</div><!-- .entry-content -->
    
    				<?php
    				/**
    				 * generate_after_content hook.
    				 *
    				 * @since 0.1
    				 */
    				do_action( 'generate_after_content' );
    				?>
    
    			</div><!-- .inside-article -->
    
    			<?php
    			/**
    			 * generate_after_main_content hook.
    			 *
    			 * @since 0.1
    			 */
    			do_action( 'generate_after_main_content' );
    			?>
    		</main><!-- #main -->
    	</div><!-- #primary -->
    
    	<?php
    	/**
    	 * generate_after_primary_content_area hook.
    	 *

    	 */
    	 do_action( 'generate_after_primary_content_area' );
    
    	 generate_construct_sidebars();
    
    get_footer();

    And you’re sure the code snippet is activated? That code should definitely work, especially when hooked into after_setup_theme.

    Yeah, it is activated and still not working. It was working the first time I implemented it! ๐Ÿ™

    OH WAIT! I TOTALLY CONFUSED THEM! I was trying to make the 404 page come up by typing incorrect terms into my search bar but I forgot that the 404 page is for links that are old and no longer there! The custom 404 page comes up when I try to access an old page that’s been deleted!

    So sorry for my confusion on this!
