    I just began setting up a new site today and it went public without asking my permission. It is still VERY MUCH in Beta and I want to hide it while it is under construction.

    I only get the Public and Hide from Search Engine options under Settings -> Privacy.

    I am using Sliding Door 2.6.1

    Thanks!

    Hi HubtuitAdmin,

    Those settings only attempt to block search engines, a real person can still visit your site. The best thing would be to add an Under Construction plugin to your site while it's in development.

    The Simple "Coming soon" And "Under construction" is very easy to set up and use:

    Here's a walk through of how to install that plugin:

    Hope this helps!
