We tried a few and This One is Perfect.
Very Easy to use even newbies got it working in less than a 1/2 hour--and that includes changing and adding colors, pics, fonts and words.
I use this plugin for all my sites, it's very easy in use.
When installed, make sure you view your site AFTER loggin out. Enabling the plugin, AND turning it on/into MAINTENANCE MODE makes the sucker work like a charm! It is brilliant. Easy to use and code. Simple HTML page. Heck, we use if for our corporate clients so we can "take down their old site", while the DNS propagates and then turn it on 2 days later. Works like a charm. We SELDOM use plugins, but this one is a MUST for us.
Enable/Disable toggle with text editor to customize the "site down" page.Takes less than a minute to get up and running. Thanks!
What a great plugin!! Just what I needed. Use the standard message or make a custom html page. Thanks!
Works simple and effective, perfect!
P.S. note for all the 1-star voters:
You have to logout to see the "site offline" message ^^
You can make your splash page look exactly how you want it and match your brand (if you have one). I think some plugins try to get too fancy with too many options which really makes a site look cheap. And this one actually is cheap—it's free. Thanks for this great option.
This plugin works perfectly. You need to activate the plugin and under settings you have to tick yes for offline mode. Than you log out and check the front end. I feel a login button should be there for admin. But its manageable.
Works fine with latest WP (4.0). If you want YOUR OWN html page to display as under construction / coming soon, then this plug-in does exactly that with a single click! Superior when compared to other 'ultimate' under constrution plugins that did not work correctly with WP 4.0 and MultiSite mode. Keep it running!
