Disable Site

A WordPress plugin to disable your website front-end and display a message to your visitors while still allowing back-end access.

A plugin to temporarily disable your website front-end and display a message to your visitors while still allowing back-end access. This plugin can be enabled or disabled with one click and also supports using your own custom HTML/CSS output for the splash page so you can make it as simple or as custom as you need it to be.

This plugin is especially useful if you need to temporarily make your site unavailable to your visitors. For example, you're working on a new blog or website and you want to show a temporary "coming soon" page to your visitors while you're working on it; or you're fixing major bugs that would disrupt the user experience and need to make the front-end temporarily unavailable; or any other reason that you would need to make your website temporarily unavailable.

This plugin can be configured to allow admin users (you) to still be able to view the front-end while the splash page is enabled. If other users need to be able to review the site, you can enable authenticated users and/or specific IP addresses to be able to bypass the splash page as well.

Common uses for this plugin:

  • Displaying a splash page while you developer your blog or website
  • Temporarily making your site unavailable to visitors while you fix bugs, etc
  • Disabling a site if a client refuses to pay (we've all been there)
