Easy enough to set up and works perfectly
By , for WP 3.9.2

With the apparent demise of Michael Wohrer's Maintenance Mode plugin, YITH Maintenance Mode is a pleasant discovery and excellent replacement.

Almost perfect
By , for WP 3.9.1

Hello I installed this plugin, is nice and easy to setup in few minutes.
My recommendation to prevent problems and confusions is that in General Settings in Roles, the role of administrator is turned on by default, so if you are an administrator and you enable the splash page, you will have problems to enter your site, to prevent this uncheck it.

The notes says: Check a role to enable it to show the website with maintenance mode active.

So the roles that you check are the roles that will see the splash page.

Thanks to the developer is a great plugin and works as promised.

Great Plug-In for client sites

I love this plug-in! It works great for any site when you need to do a little maintenance. Check it out on gittilpopcorn.com a wholesale popcorn company and see it for yourself. My clients love it.

Works up until 3.8.1
By , for WP 3.8.1

It was working before I went from 8.0 to 8.1.

Should get things fixed. A bunch of YITH plugins haven't been updated in forever on the plugin repository. Should get on fixing that shit.

Completely broke my permissions

Can no longer log into my site.

A simple to use plugin that keeps your development out of site. A choice of skins for the temp page displayed. Great & easy to use

Default settings = dangerous
By ,

Default setting has Admin checked and all other user types unchecked. Also mentions something about how checked users will see the frontend.

Turns out this isn't the case.

This ridiculous interface is ass-backwards. The user types you check will be the only ones to NOT have access.

End result:

  • My site is hidden from the public.
  • /wp-admin or /wp-login are not accessible.
  • My site is hidden from all admin users on my account. Which is the only user type I have.
  • My only solution here is to restore from a server snapshot.
  • I give this plugin 1 star.
  • Please, world, do not download this plugin.
