Error page

Visitors see an error page when they click on a link to a page that Brightspot cannot deliver. Common sources of errors are a broken link (error 404) or the site is temporarily unavailable (error 503). For a comprehensive list of error codes, see Client error responses and Server error responses.

You can design a customized error page for all error codes, or design a single page for all errors. Some publishers use error pages to enhance branding. For example, the error 404 page at brightspot prominently displays the company logo.
