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 administr’ator 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.

This is the best of it's kind out there. Simple, easy to use and looks amazing on desktop or mobile. The developer definitely put some time and effort into creating this amazing plugin. Perfect during development phase, and I'm keeping it for when I need to do maintenance that I don't want my viewers seeing. Thank you so much for creating this amazing plugin.

Hi there! I tried to use the plugin not for the first time and every time have problems. You should make everything correctly from the very beginning because after the turning the maintenance mode on you will be able to change definitely NOTHING! The plugin do not save changes and still show the wrong maintenance page after deactivation and deleting the plugin. I have no caching plugin on the website, I deleted the background image from the hosting and clear the browser cache but it is still there! Moreover in mobile devices it doesn't show the texts on the center of the screen and do not show logo at all... I'd rather will not try to use this plugin any more...

Love this - works so easily and simply and doesn't slow down the site like the more popular maintenance page was doing. Awesome, thank you!

This is one of the easiest and nicest that I've seen. I especially like the window that swings out of the way to log in.

After searching for how to (probably) temporarily shut down one of my site - I chose this plug-in at random - works a treat, no problem.
