Support » Fixing WordPress » under construction page, so I can work on new theme

  • Hey all,
    Is there a way to show a page or splash screen to my visitors while I am transferring to a new theme?

    I know how to activate an “under construction” template, but I want to be able to work on my new theme in the background.

    Thanks!! 🙂

  • This might work – create your “under construction” page.

    Using phpMyAdmin look up the new record number.

    Then edited the database wp_options table
    and change ‘page_on_front’ value to the new page number (remember the current setting so you can put it back later)

    I know this will change the landing page that is displayed – I have done it. I would assume you would also be able to call your current landing page through the admin panel if no where else. And without links on your under construction page visitors should only see that page – while you should be able to rework your site in private. When your done just change that number back and your back in business.

    Use my plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/under-construction/
    logged in users won’t see the page.
