Installation Instructions

Installation can be done either by composer or by manually downloading a release.

Via composer

composer require "dljoseph/silverstripe-custom-error-page:*"


  1. Download the module from the releases page.
  2. Extract the file (if you are on windows try 7-zip for extracting tar.gz files
  3. Make sure the folder after being extracted is named 'custom-error-page'
  4. Place this directory in your sites root directory. This is the one with framework and cms in it.
  5. Visit <yoursite.com>/dev/build/?flush to rebuild the database.

Usage Overview

Once installed, the SilverStripe ErrorPage will be augmented with an additional field to allow the administrator to select which template to use for the error page.

Be sure to add the following line to your Page_Controller class in mysite/code/Page.php to allow template overrides:

`public $templates; //required for template overrides`


If you wish to use a different template for the ErrorPage, simply create a new SilverStripe template file, be sure to place it directly in the templates folder (above Layouts) and visit /?flush to flush the template cache. Afterwards, you must go to the ErrorPage in the CMS and manually select the template from the dropdown to tell SilverStripe which template to use to render the ErrorPage for display.
