How to change maintenance mode message (3 posts)

    I would like to change the maintenance mode message to something a more user-friendly, than the plain message which is the default.

    I can't find the file in which this string appears.

    The message appears while plugins or themes, etc., are being updated.

    Thanks!

    Find function wp_maintenance in /wp-includes/load.php.

    "The default message can be replaced by using a drop-in (maintenance.php in the wp-content directory)."
