FAQ

I have activated plugin and don’t see any changes, looks like plugin is not working.

Try to check in different browser. If you a logged as WordPress user you see the website in normal mode.

Will my site remain visible to search engines while maintenance mode is on?

The site will not be visible to search engines only if “503 Service Temporarily Unavailable” option is enabled.

Where can I find out the username and password to get to the site?

You can use your “normal” WP administrator access or create a new user in WordPress dashboard – Users.

If I incorrectly write a login and password I will see the error on the page wp-login?

No, it will be display error on current maintenance page, without redirect to wp-login page.

I haven’t found an answer to my question, what should I do?

Please post the question on the support forum.

How can I report security bugs?

Antes que cualquier otra cosa, lo primero es modo mantenimiento con este plugin. Puedo dar un usuario extra a mis clientes y que vean los avances en vivo sin tener que abrir la página al público. Fácil de manejar, cambios, practico. Definitivamente cumple y mucho. Además esa seguridad extra que da es de mucha ayuda.

Background pictures aren’t shown; Fonts aren’t loaded; It activates upon install, without asking confirmation from the user; The preview doesn’t match the actual page output. This on a purely static wordpress install. This plugin should be tagged as deprecated and removed from marketplace. It’s completely non-functional.

Bof

Impossible de simplement avoir un background blanc. La chose la plus simple à demander. Bref, après paramétrage simple (d’où les 3 étoiles) mais très très limité.

This is a great plugin. Simple enough to get it up and running with my own customisation in 10 minutes. But if you don’t want any customisation then you can just download the plugin, activate it and then turn on the maintenance mode and you are done. Also there’s all the options you would expect in the free version. Definitely worth trying it out.
