Launcher is the perfect WordPress plugin for anyone launching a new product, website or service. Stun visitors with one of our beautiful, ready-made templates or create your own. Build anticipation with timers, contact forms and other promotional features.
Create buzz around your product even before you actually launch it. A well-built launch page ensures you are not wasting any traffic that lands on your website before you are ready to show your website/product to the world.
Our plugin also has a nifty opt-in feature to help visitors enter their contact details. You can setup the plugin to add those email subscribers to any one of your favorite email marketing services. Currently, Feedburner, MailChimp, Aweber, Get Response, Campaign Monitor, and Mad Mimi are supported with support for even more services coming soon. This feature alone makes it worth your while to have a launcher page because when you do launch, you already have an audience that is interested in your product and will serve as your “beta testing” sample as well.
With options to change colors and add your own background image – you will be sure that no other launcher page will look like yours.
We have added a simple “enable” button you can use to turn the launch page on or off at any time you like. We know you do not want to keep making the changes every time you disable the plugin, so this small feature will help you retain all the settings for future use.
Launcher plugin is also perfect if you are changing your website’s frontend but do not want visitors to see the changes until your website is done with the redesign. With our plugin, your visitors will see the launch/coming soon page while as the users with administrator access will see the regular front-end. This way, you can see the changes live while everyone else sees a “coming soon” page.
While your website is under construction, you can tell the search engines not to index your website with the click of a button.
You can upload a new favicon while the website has a launch page activated and you can add your own title or description to the launch page too.
It is a very light-weight plugin and doesn’t add any additional load to your website or your server. It comes with three unique pre-defined templates you can use out-of-the-box or as a base to create a new layout of your own.
Launcher plugin for WordPress also comes with a frontend editor to make editing the under-construction page a no-brainer. There is a contact form built-in for helping your visitors get in touch with you while the launcher plugin is enabled.

Yes, this plugin is developer friendly and supports Custom Templates. You can add templates via the theme or an add-on plugin.
Create a new ‘launcher’ folder in your theme directory, and add your template files there. The new templates will automatically show up on the Settings page of the Launcher plugin. You can also copy templates from the ‘templates’ folder of the plugin into your ‘launcher’ theme folder, but keep in mind that if the file path is the same as that of a default template (e.g. default/default.php), then it will replace the default template instead of adding a new one.

Hi – how do you upload your own template with the Launcher Plugin?
nice design and options..especially the contact form
good ideas but buggy development – looses CSS address if wp url is different than installed folder
What a wonderful plugin! Super-easy to setup, nice converting templates. The live edit template mode with lots of options to setup is awesome!
A little issue: On the frontend edit mode, on adding words like “We’re”, i.e. apostrophes, it automatically adds backslashes to it. So, it then becomes “We\’re”. Can you please solve this?
Except this, the plugin is really awesome!
Today i tried so many coming soon landing pages, but most of them provide only premium templates, but this plugin provides all of their good templates for free. Thank you so much. i had an small problem picking up the logo in editor mood, after upload, there is no option to selected the upload logo, so the theme could replace the default logo. also if you can add a function to replace the backgorund images would be great.
Classy and Functional. Love it
