Insert a splash page (2 posts)

    Just curious how I can insert a splash page without wordpress stepping in the way and directing to index.php.

    I suppose 'splash' is a bad term... I'm just more interested in an 'under construction' page up front while I work out the kinks in my CSS design... it's purely temporary.

    I have index.htm (the splash) in the root directory right now. I tried to use a .htaccess file code... but failed, here's what I used:

    #DirectoryIndex index.php index.html
    #Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteBase /

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^(.+) - [PT,L]

    RewriteRule ^(.*) index.htm
    </IfModule>
