This plugin allows you to specify a maintenance mode message / page for your site and configure users to bypass the maintenance mode functionality.
This is the only plugin I use as a Maintenance mode or redirect page while I am building sites. As a web designer, I use this on almost all of my client websites and find it pivotal. Simple to use and easy to setup, enable or disable quickly.
I use this on all development sites as it's the only one I've come across that gives you access keys to send to a client to allow them to see the site without having to give them an account.
Absolutely essential to the point that its full functionality should be included in the core WP (sorry Jack!)
The very best of the bunch!
I love this plugin.
please update this plugin - it works fine now but i'd love to see more people use your great tool and of course you can't be found since you are more than 2 years behind on updates.
I really like this plugin. Seems to work through most recent versions.
Only weird thing that happened to me is that one time when I had an access key available for too long (I normally cancel them after client has reviewed) Google indexed the development site access key. Sort of weird.
But besides that, love it!
Though not updated in long time, I've used it through WP 3.4 and its working just fine. Love the access key backend for clients to view when needed etc.
Also using Headway as framework and no issues there. Installing on 3.5.1 today.
So far it has been a reliable plugin to use. Have never had any issues with Wp version upgrades.
