I got the reason why my custom error page was not loading, along with assigning custom VF pages under site error page we also need to enable a setting under community preferences.

Thanks all for your comments and suggestions.

  • Glad you figured out.

In your site settings, there is a section called Error pages. You can click Page Assignment button and reassign your own custom VF page there. As shown in the below screenshot:

  1. Go to Setup > Sites > Open your site by clicking the name of your community > Go to Error Pages section > Click Page Assignment button and assign you VF Error page.
  2. Go to All Sites > Workspace next to your community name > Administration > Preferences > Select Use custom Visualforce error pages, then click Save


You should be able to see your custom VF error page in your community.
