Adds a splash page to your site that lets visitors know your site is down for maintenance. Full access to the back- & front-end is optional.
Excellent plugin, works well.
I could give 5 stars if the countdown worked (or if some CLEAR explanation about was posted).
Easy to setup, works as expected, just right amount of configuration options. Love it!
The plugin is easy to use. Thanks
I used this plugin recently and was very happy with the ability to customize the display page and enable disable specific viewing of pages. The author is very attentive to updates and inquiries. Thank you for this great WordPress plugin!!
Does exactly what it should
Useful when testing themes and plugins and it has lots of templates to choose from
I often use the plugin
Best wordpress plugin for website maintenance. Thanks
Plugin deactivates itself for no reason, leaving the site open to the public.
This is a very cool and nicely configurable plugin.
One bug fix needed:
site.php, line 95:
<?php bloginfo('url') ?>
<?php echo site_url(); ?>
Otherwise, the countdown timer won't work, if your Site Address isn't at the root of your site (i.e. if need to use /wp/wp-includes...).
And, you can't fully rely on this plugin for any serious WordPress maintenance (such as a manual upgrade), because the plugin is part of WordPress and thus requires WordPress to be in a functional state. An all-purpose solution would involve an .htaccess rule that temporarily redirects to a static HTML files, thus not depending on WP at all.
But, if you have to do it within WordPress, this plugin is great!
