Has the advanced options I need

Has loads of easy-to-use tools, but I needed exactly what this plug in offers: a big field for custom HTML and a big field for custom CSS. Boom. You can skip the built-in page builder altogether if you want to. I cranked out an engaging “coming soon” page in less than an hour. Also: The developer definitely went the extra mile or whatever on the interface: Lots of clear, friendly instruction and organized, tabbed layout. A pleasure to use. Thank you!

Great Plugin

This plugin is great, it is the only “Coming Soon” plugin I use! One neat idea I just thought of would be a if I can share a link to the site that will allow the person to view the website without the “Coming Soon” for an hour or two after they view it. This way my clients can review their website before I launch it.
