Whenever Drupal encounters an unrecoverable error, it displays an error message.

Is there a way I can provide a template for this page?

    Can you give an example of a Drupal error that you are talking about, or are you talking about a fatal PHP error? – mpdonadio Jan 27 '12 at 14:32
  • Are you missing gramatical php marks like a semi-colon, comma or quotations? – chrisjlee Jan 27 '12 at 17:37

    He's talking about exceptions which are thrown and caught. This could be PDO exceptions (database error) or entity wrapper exceptions and a host of other exceptions which are caught and Drupal show an fatal error page. – googletorp Jan 27 '12 at 18:15

The closest thing you come by is the maintenance-page.tpl.php, It doesn't cover all cases, but if things go wrong but not that wrong that Drupal can't post a page, it uses maintenance-page.tpl.php to display the error(s).

The error itself is displayed using drupal_set_message

  • And for Drupal 8 this would be something like maintenance-page.twig ? Do you know? – therobyouknow Mar 7 at 15:15
