Super Useful, Super Simple, Easy to Configure
By , for WP 4.0

I've used this plugin a ton over the years to make private sites for myself or private sites for clients to review. It always works well and is quick to configure.

Works very well

I love it. It is very easy to put a website under maintenance and testing on the same time with a few people.

By , for WP 3.9.1

I love this plugin. It allows me to put my website under a maintenance mode for everyone execpt on given ip addresses.
It's just too bad we can't restrict access to only specific pages.

Great solution

It's an effective plugin which works in a non-intrusive, elegant way. The options are handy and thought out well. Thanks for the nice work.

I use it to restrict access to my dev staging sites. Works perfectly for that.

Excellent plugin, works perfectly
By , for WP 3.8.1

I really appreciate this plugin. It does just what it's supposed to, simple and effective.

To the author, just one suggestion. When I first used it, I was a little confused by labels on the radio buttons. I think it would be a lot clearer if the one option:

"Discourage search engines from indexing this site"

...instead, said something like:

"Discourage search engines from indexing this site, but don't restrict visitors."

And if the other option:

"Restrict site access to visitors who are logged in or allowed by IP address"

...instead, said something like:

"Restrict site access to visitors who are logged in or allowed by IP address, and discourage search engines." (I assume this is the case, right?)

But in any case, thank you for the great plugin.
