Creates a Coming Soon page or Launch page for your Website while it's under construction and collects emails from your visitors.
The plugin itself deserves 5 stars, but the upgrade (for the Pro version) is so ridiculous and convoluted, I took off a star for that. In fact the upgrade path deserves 2 stars to be knocked off. A pro version of a plugin is supposed to be EASIER, not harder to deal with.
No way to save the settings, manual upgrade required... which wouldn't be that big of a deal, except that you have to DELETE the previous version (which was being used) before WordPress will allow a manual upgrade, because the directory already exists.
So now I have to recreate what I had set-up. I'm not happy. Oh, and when you click "visit plugin Developer's site" it takes you to the site's home page.... with no obvious instructions/menu on what to choose to find download instructions. The "My Account" is hidden (the plugin is sold through a 3rd party). For anyone looking, start with "Support", then you'll be able to find the "My Account"/login link.
And have your license key handy, you will need to put it in again after you upgrade.
If I wasn't so happy with the plugin I wouldn't go through all this. When the plugin is up for renewal (it's an annual license), I may just downgrade to the free version...which works just fine without all these hoops to jump through.
Does what it says.
Simple and efficient. Doesn't need to be fancy, but if you want you can add stuff. Good job. and Thanks for the freebie!
I think this plugin is ideal for it.
Looks like this will solve my problem. WP requires the domain live before the site is ready, so a Coming Soon page is perfect.
The site warned me it had not been tested for the latest WP and indeed I was unable to add images, except inside the page editing box. You could upload, browse and select but not choose it.
But for me, that's not a big deal. I just need the page with a bit of information and a link to the currently active site.
If there was one feature I'd like to see added, it would be the ability to forward to another site. If you forward the domain, WordPress becomes inaccessible. It would be great if visitors could be forwarded to another site, but you could still access the back end. Otherwise, this is the best plugin I've found for this purpose. Thanks a heap!
I find it to be well coded out. Thanks.
