Finally - one that WORKS!
By , for WP 4.2.2

I've tried several under construction plugins and had to quickly abandon them for one reason or another. This one is great because it is easy to use and it does a great job at the Free level. If I continue to enjoy this plugin, I will purchase the Pro version.

Works flawlessly

Make sure you are logged out when testing

A comment/question I am getting a lot is "the plugin isn't working"

If Construction Mode is set to ON, then it is definitely on.

The plugin is programmed in a way that lets the admin/editor of the site to continue seeing the site normally, however anyone who is logged out will see the Under Construction mode as intended.

I built this plugin originally for myself, because I was developing many sites for clients on the live server and I didn't want google finding the site or anyone seeing it either until it was done, while I continued building the website. And figured there are many others who do the same that could use this plugin.

I have noticed a few negative (1 star) reviews resulting from this. Users are expecting to see the Construction Mode right away ( while logged in ). I regularly get this question too.

When testing, you can either click on Preview or open the site incognito, or log out then visit the site!

thank you

very bad plugin

this is a useless plugin. it does not do as it says on the tin.

Simple and good looking - would like a LinkedIn social option
By , for WP 4.1.1

I needed a simple under construction page for a few days while I found the time to build the website, and this fit the bill as a simple to set up and attractive theme. The options available in the free version are more than sufficient for a basic page, so no real complaints on that end.

I do request that LinkedIn be added to the social icons; with that addition it'd be a 5 star plugin for me.

Couldn't have chosen better
