Just wanted to give a quick, heartfelt thanks for this great plugin. I have always wanted an easy way to keep the public (and clients) from seeing a site while still in development, while still giving me the full ability to test it and see it as it will actually look.
I've used various techniques in the past (even going so far as to build the entire site on my own local server using XAMPP before loading it up to the real host), and while they were effective, they were way more work for me than using your plugin.
I really like that I can put in my own custom message without even having to build a temporary HTML file, so it's easy to put company contact info up until the site is complete.
You rock. Thanks again.
