    Frequently I will turn off the plugin and even deactivate it, but the “coming soon” info still displays. At first I assumed it was a cache issue, but I have tried multiple browsers on multiple computers. As I keep trying and trying, it’ll eventually turn off.

    This has been happening for many months, but seems especially annoying today so I’m here to report the bug.

    I do not believe it’s an issue with my WP install because, as I mentioned, it has happened repeatedly across multiple websites, multiple domains, and even multiple servers.

    I do not believe it’s an issue with cache because I frequently test with multiple browsers (Chrome, MSIE, Edge, Browzar, and more) and across multiple computers.

    Turning it on and off and even deactivating the plugin often doesn’t help.

    At least once, I turned it on and walked away for a week only to realize it wasn’t on (despite being in the on position). This freaked me out a bit since the content was unprotected. Lesson learned — always check and double check.

    Hi,
    If the plugin is deactivated (and deleted) and the coming soon page is still visible – that’s cache. No question about it. When its files are gone … they’re gone. It can’t affect the site anymore.

    It’s definitely not an issue with WP either. If you can share an URL or two I can have a look at the caching situation. With companies like SiteGround cache can only be purged only via their control panels or dedicated plugins.

    OK – It is with Siteground. When I was thinking of cache, I was thinking cache on my web browsers. hmmm

    If it’s Siteground, install https://wordpress.org/plugins/sg-cachepress/ purge the cache and all will be well 🙂

    I had the same issue !

    Install SiteGround’s utility – it’ll fix things.
