How to create error page in Sitecore

In every Sitecore application, you have to create error page. Error can be occurred at any time anywhere in application [We developers are always right. Errors are always due to incorrect contents entered by content editor J].

Anyway here are the steps to implement it

·         Create template, layout and content item for error page. I am creating only two fields in template here – Error Title, Error Message
·         On error page, I am displaying information of both these fields entered by content tree.
·         Generally I am creating single layout for all the contents. So I implemented the Page_Error event to capture all the error generated at layout page level.
·         Here is code

/// <summary>
/// page-level exception handler
/// </summary>
/// <param name="sender"></param>
/// <param name="e"></param>
public void Page_Error(object sender, EventArgs e)
    // retrieve the last exception
    Exception exception = HttpContext.Current.Server.GetLastError();

    // handle any exception
    if (exception != null)
        string error = exception.ToString();

/// <summary>
/// Log and redirect to error page
/// </summary>
/// <param name="error"></param>
private void ErrorLog(string error)
    // log and clear the exception
    Sitecore.Diagnostics.Log.Error(error, this);
    // Pass the error on to the Generic Error page   
    string errorPageURL = Sitecore.Links.LinkManager.GetItemUrl(Sitecore.Context.Database.Items.GetItem(new ID("{SSSS778C-JKHJ-SKSK-A01C-411E2028KKKK}")));
