Reviews

Ok, but needs improvements!

First of all the plugin does what it should do, BUT:

– If the plugin is active you are unable to edit the main website using the Customizer, because it redirects you to the coming soon site. This breaks the whole usage of the plugin, because i want to work on the main site while i’m using the coming soon plugin.
– The plugin content depends on the theme which is active. If you modify your coming soon page and then change the active theme, all changes on the coming soon page are gone.

Please fix these problems. For the first one try NOT to overwrite the Customizer. For the second one please add an option to specify which coming soon page is shown independent of the active theme.

Typical “free” WP junk

Mailchimp “integration” incomprehensible. You have to climb into the MC code and cut and paste OUT a code snippet. Tried several variants, none worked. Who has time for this?

Skip this. It’s free and you get what you paid for.

Great Plugin

Very easy to install, and modify to your liking. 5 stars.

Fantastic pugin and support

I am using this plugin with the Genesis theme for 2 of my websites as coming soon subscribe now pages and i couldn’t be happier. The plugin is easy to customize and the developers have been so amazing with any questions i have had and any help needed. i cannot recommend this enough 🙂
