Does What It Says It Does

Finally, a plugin that does what it says it does. Works well with my non-standard WP theme. Get a simple message to all or select pages when I’m down for maintenance. Haven’t done any CSS with it but I’m sure that works well too judging by the design of the plugin.

Love this plug in!

This is an excellent plugin. Allowing the use of an image instead of link text creates endless possibilities for buttons to launch pop-up windows. Visit my website at www.4power.com to see how I launch my welcome video using this plugin.
