    Hi @laribey

    Plugin is clearly viral or hacky – I don’t know what to call it – ban it!

    Plugins are manually reviewed by the WordPress.org team, they won’t let any “hacky” plugins be on their official repository, don’t worry, you’re safe.

    The shutdown button does not work – the plug remains hanging!

    By “shutdown button” I assume you meant disabling the plugin and by “remains hanging” I assume you meant the coming soon page still shows up even after disabling.

    Is that correct?

    When you disable a plugin the code from that plugin no longer runs, WordPress does not load it. No code in the plugin can run unless the plugin is active.

    The only possibility is caching.

    But caching can be stubborn sometimes.

    However I’m sure it cleared by now and the landing page is gone now. Can you let me know if that is the case?

    Yes, right.

    Even when the plugin is completely removed, the blocking of the site remains hanging!
    Apparently this is due to the fact that the plugin settings are not deleted! I will try to remove them using phpMyAdmin. But this is a plugin glitch anyway!

    The enable / disable plugin button when the plugin is active does not work.

    I downloaded the plugin and uninstalled it again – now the lock remains hanging. Maybe it will disappear in a few days.

    Clearing cache has no effect.

    This seems like it should be a support topic, not a review. Please continue at https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/fancy-coming-soon-maintenance-mode/
