Adds a splash page to your site that lets visitors know your site is down for maintenance. It's perfect for a coming soon page.
While it does work:
Plugin is good.
But me missing:
- a Background repeat function with uploaded Image
- a place for my logo
- a admin Login
The previous Version i liked more than this!
( previous Version = 5 Stars )
Unfortunately the splash page doesn't work, and the plugin just sends a generic 503 HTTP response, so visitors see "The service is unavailable" and nothing else.
So it's good to keep search engines from crawling the site during maintenance, but it's not very visitor-friendly. I suppose I'll give it a 2/5 because it does actually put it into maintenance mode, but it doesn't deliver as promised. None of the splash pages actually load.
For some reason MySQL (5.5.31 on Debian Wheezy) was crashing after a few minutes upon activating the plugin. Might be a conflict issue.
Other plugin with similar functionality does not trigger this crash.
Except for this everything seemed to be working fine.
Also, it was mentioned before, not sure if leaving a link with icon by default is a good practice. Most of included CSS styles indeed aren't too attractive, yet default one is simplistic enough and looks fine.
