How do I use FeedBurner to collect emails?

What if I get locked out?

If you get locked out, just go straight to the wp-login page. http://www.example.com/wp-login.php

The plugin is enabled…but my website still shows

I often hear people say “The plugin is enabled..but my website still shows! How do i fix this?”

If you are logged into WordPress you will not see the coming soon page. You will see your normal website. This is so you can work on it while visitors see the coming soon page.

If you are logged out of WordPress and still see your normal website then either your browser is caching the page or you having a caching plugin that is serving a cached version of the page.

To remedy:

  1. Clear your browser or caching plugin’s cache.


  1. Open a different browser and you should see your coming soon page.
I disabled the plugin but the Coming Soon page is still showing.

This occurs when you are using a caching plugin and the plugin is still serving a cached page.

To fix:

  1. Clear the cache on your browser.
  2. Clear the cache on the plugin you are using.
  3. If still appearing then disable the caching plugin. You really only need to use a caching plugin when you site is live and NOT in development.


Free version very basic!

Free version very basic. Not sure what options the ‘Pro.” version offers. I opted for Coming Soon CC instead… it was personal preference, it looks great and and it loads quicker.

Pro License EXPIRES

I got the pro license, which comes with updates and support for a year. But then after my year expired, installing the original version and applying the license fails.
If you want to cut off support and updates fine. But don’t disable the function of the older version. That’s crap.

The older version of free collected emails. So obviously the function was removed to force paying.

2 stars instead of 1 (or 0) because it’s actually a great plugin. Just a rip off to paying customers. I’ll pay once, but not year after year to support ransomware.

My favourite plugin!

This plugin works each time I use it. I am also a fan of Ultimate Maintenance mode – which is now discontinued and replaced by this one

Excellent service & plugin

I just installed the plugin and had some issues. John responded almost instantly and solved the problem/wishes within the hour. Most serious developers I have encountered provide good support, but John handles it at warp speed too.


Great for holding pages

This is a great plugin to use when developing a new site.
Add the live site to the server, holding page up
Developer and client login to see the site.
Once its ready, disable the plugin.
Easy to use.
