Support » Requests and Feedback » Native Maintenance Mode for WP and Multisite

  • It would make so much sense now that WordPress has evolved into a CMS that Maintenance Mode toggling should be a native feature in the backend just like Joomla or Drupal.

    To take it one step further, it would be great to see this feature work across multisite installations. Right now I have tried using both WP Maintenance Mode and Maintenance Mode plugins both to no avail on my network.

    What does everyone think?

    Maintenance Mode should work if you enable it network wide. should also work. Just put the file in mu-plugins when you want it to run.

    Interesting plugin. Can display the web from a specific IP?

    I usually use .htaccess (apache):

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} !^11\.22\.33\.44$
    RewriteRule !503.php$ /503.php [L]

    Assume your public-static-ip are and 503.php contains your “Web under maintenance” message…
