Not optimal and should be solved by an own Hexo page, because GitHub Pages allows you to deliver a custom 404 page by creating simply a
404.html in the root of the website.
As you can create separate pages in Hexo, this is done quickly by:
hexo new page "404"
It generates a new folder named
404 in your
source folder, where a
index.md is placed. In this file you can enter the text as Markdown you want to show to the user, in case of a 404 error (page not found) occurs.
On generating the static files by
hexo generate, a subfolder
404 with a
index.html will be created, which doesn’t really work with GitHub Pages, because it needs a
404.htm in the root.
You can fix this, by defining the
permalink in the Frontmatter of your page:
Example … click here: https://kiko.io/no-page-here
