Puts the site into maintenance mode by sending a '503 Service Unavailable' status to all unauthenticated clients.
When I put my sites in maintenance mode I don't need a plugin that does anything but return a 503 code to non-logged in visitors. This plugin does just that and nothing else. Perfect.
Brilliant little plugin that does exactly what is sais: it puts your site in maintenance mode and sends a "503 Service Unavailable" header, which tells search engines to come back later.
Nothing more, nothing less.
I prefer this plugin over other maintanance plugins as it doesn´t save any options to the database.
BTW: The previous two 1-star comments don´t make any sense. Look at the code, the plugin doesn´t do anything else than sending a 503 header.
Works GREAT for my site! Good work!
Happy trails, Mike
Simple and nice. Activating the plugin put the site in maintenance mode.
