Lovely does what it said on the box and more!
By , for WP 3.9.1

Works as intended. I took this one as it allows pages to be available for users even though the main site is not. We used it to allow visitors access to our email Contact Form 7 page.

However in the main text field I entered HTML code and this allowed me to have a background picture, my Logo and lots of text. Brilliant in other words. Thanks.

Works Well...Needs one more little thing though
By ,

Works well in multisite! As a feature request though, it would be good to have a link at the top to ACTIVATE it. As it is, there's only a link at the top to deactivate it. So to activate it on multisite (not sure about single installs) you have to navigate to Network Admin, Plugins, Scroll Down, down, down, down, if you have a lot of plugins, and then activate it.

Otherwise, great.

Oh, forgot one thing: Dear Developer, if you made a pro version for multisite, I'd buy it! But it would have to be able to do like, 'Main Blog Up, Sites Down. Sites Down, Main Blog Up' stuff. There was another plugin that attempted to do this, but failed. It didn't work at all and the developer just gave up on it. It's the only plugin in his repetoir and it's been abandoned. Cheers.

SPAM!
By , for WP 3.8

Every since I downloaded this plug in, Ive been getting 10+ SPAM comment posts , on a un-published site/domain.

Deleting plug in... OH and did i mention it doesn't even work for its purpose? NO back end , under maintenance abilities...

FAIL...

A must have plugin - should be part of WP core
By , for WP 3.8

I've used this on three sites (WP 3.6.x & 3.7 & 3.8). What an excellent way to keep a site secret while it's being worked on. Thanks for this great plugin!
