    Hi :) Just like to know whether this plugin also send '503 Service Unavailable' status to search engine to avoid from both losing site's existing content and indexing the maintenance page as well.

    I think this is very important for a good site.

    the plugin send a 503 and also the time.

    header("HTTP/1.0 503 Service Unavailable");
    header("Retry-After: $backtime");

    this header send to frontend, if the maintenance mode is active.
