Work on your website behinds the scenes while you display a Maintenance Mode page to your visitors.
I use this plugin on every site I work on. Very helpful!
Works almost perfect... only had issues with the screeshot... but i made mine... and that´s it!
Solid plugin, does what it says, though if you use a background image use a big one otherwise it will stretch it.
Some extra basic options would have gotten it a 5 star rating, e.g. having the option to quickly select a base flat background colour (or pattern if you want to get fancy) rather than having to upload and see if the image works or if you need to resize it etc.
It's a great plugin I would just ask for it to be a bit more customizable. I needed to style the Custom Headline as well...
I checked out this plugin. Its very simple and easy to use. But one BIG flaw. If you use something like Theme My Login where you dont use the normal wp-admin. You can lock yourself out and only way back in is to use MySQL to disable maintenance mode.
