How to Upload a HTML Page to WordPress without 404 Errors

Do you want to upload a HTML page to your WordPress site? Sometimes you may need to add a static HTML page and make it accessible along with your WordPress site. In this article, we will show you how to properly upload a HTML page to your WordPress site without causing 404 errors.

Why Upload HTML Pages to WordPress?

There are even WordPress landing page plugins that allow you to create beautiful page templates with a drag and drop builder.

However, sometimes a user may have static HTML pages from their old website or a static template that they really like and want to use. In these scenarios, you will need to upload your HTML page to WordPress.
