Redirecting to a Home page instead of 404 page in Gatsby

In this tutorial, we will learn how to redirect a user to Home page (/) instead of displaying the (Not found) 404 page in Gatsby.

Redirecting to Home page

  1. Open the gatsby app in your favorite code editor.

  2. Create a 404.js file inside the src/pages folder and add the following code.

404.js
import React, { useEffect } from "react";
import { navigate } from "gatsby";
export default function NotFoundPage() {
  useEffect(() => {
    navigate("/"); // redirecting to home page  }, []);

  return (
    <div>
      <h1>(404) NotFound Page</h1>
    </div>
  );
}

In the above code, we first imported the navigate() method from the gatsby package and invoked it inside the useEffect() hook by passing a homepage path /, so that it redirects a user to Home page whenever he/she visits a 404 page.

Note: The useEffect() hook with a second argument empty [] array acts like componentDidMount lifecycle method in class components.
