    Just some feedback on a great plugin.

    When MM is active it blocks all web crawlers from accessing any files or pages on the site including Robots.txt is there any way to let web crawlers in when MM is active?

    I have a dynamic theme which auto adjusts when viewing the page on a mobile device. The only issue is when MM is active and you’re viewing the site on a mobile device, you can’t scroll down to see the rest of the MM message.

    Is there anyway to fix this or is it just a limitation?

    It should’t block robots.txt , it only put the theme into Maintenance mode. so yes anything generate by the theme will return a 503. Also since your site is in maintenance that’s what will display on mobile as well until you put your real site back online.
