  • Visitors can either be redirected to an existing non-WordPress offline page (using http 302 temporary redirect) or WordPress pages can be temporarily replaced with the offline page.
  • Logged in admins can be whitelisted
  • The current admin's IP address can be automatically whitelisted
  • An IP-based whitelist that can accept specific IP addresses, wildcards, and ranges
  • An IP-based blacklist that redirects blacklisted IPs to a specified page
  • A notifier that appears on administrator pages when the site is offline
