Great little plugin

There are many “coming soon”/ “maintenance” plugins, but I picked this one and it’s very easy to use. I also like the fact that you can identify a URL that the splash pages skips for people (like a client or collaborator) who can log into the closed site with a password.

big help

glad i found this, works nicely, lots of customization, mailchimp working (huge), and even custom url (nice cuz i use custom url to hide wp-admin)

nice 🙂

Do the job

This plugin is easy to handle and it does the job. The possibility to authorize the connexion by the user role would be a great feature
