I'm a designer constructing my online portfolio using wordpress, but I'm not ready for a public release. However, I need the website visible to a few prospective clients ASAP.
Currently, my solution is to use the 'underconstruction' widget, and block access by showing a coming soon page. But to view the website, the plugin requires me to instruct clients to login into the backend using a subscriber account, which is a little too much work for some people.
Is there anyway to allow the website to be viewed via a URL only? Say http://www.mysite.com/preview would load up the home page, but http://www.mysite.com or anything else would lead to a coming soon page?
PS: I have wordpress installed in the root of the hosting space.
Any more info required can be provided.
