[resolved] How do I take an entire WP site offline? i.e. where's the "off" switch? (5 posts)

    I have a site that I want to make unviewable to the public for a while but I don't want to delete anything or anything like that. I just want to "turn off" the dynamic stuff that makes the blog work. Is there an "off" switch somewhere that I'm missing? Since it's all dynamic I'd imagine that such a thing is possible.

    change the name of index.php to something else like index2.php and then you can put in a simple index.html file with a message or alternate site
