Lovely Plugin
By , for WP 4.5.3

This plugin is simple to use and works perfectly. I was able to complete work on my site logging in and out as an admin while subscribers/members couldn't access or view the site while I was busy.

(Which was a relief since another maintenance mode plugin I tried before locked me out of my own site altogether)!

Thanks so much for creating it :)

Easy and handy!

A quite ease to use plugin with a great function to keep the public viewers out while you can work on the website in the meanwhile!

I was trying to find something like Sitelock for Joomla, but for WordPress and this plugin is brilliant. Couldn't be simpler to use. I'm tempted to buy the pro version for some of the pro features like the day/hours countdown and the contact form.

Finally - one that WORKS!

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

Couldn't have chosen better
