Adds a splash page to your blog that lets visitors know your blog is down for maintenance.
I've searched for days to find a plugin that does two things - lets me use a custom template stored in the theme directory so that it's not overwritten with updates and allows me to set a custom login page to be excluded from the maintenance mode.
This satisfies both those requirements and does it wonderfully. The first it does with a custom 503.php page (which fits in nicely with my 404 and other error pages) and a basic text box in the back end where I can write in my excluded pages. It's just perfect. And it works. Really, what more can you ask for.
Works perfectly thanks! I uploaded my content then noticed I had a pile of notes written to myself throughout the entire site... hmm time for bed!
I just needed it for about an hour while swapping out a theme. It worked perfectly.
I tried another plugin but uninstalled it when I couldn't get it to work. This one was really easy to set up.
This is one of 3 plugins that I use on ALL of my WordPress sites. Simple and effective - a perfect plugin.
As owner of web & print media bus - I absolutely LOVE this plugin.
However, I note it has not had an update in over 2 years???
I find it awesome; fully responsive/mobile compatible and still works well, with latest version of WP 3.6
Been using this for 4 years now, fast and reliable.
I have been using this plugin for almost a year and it STILL works flawlessly - love that I can put my own message on my Maintenance page and it's easy as clicking one box to enable... Perfect!
Works with all versions of 3.x - I'me using in on several sites, different themese etc
