Plugin: Themed WordPress Maintenance Mode – Now with permission levels
1. Currently there aren’t many options to consider if you’re updating the design or testing out various features or a new theme other than completely make the site offline to visitors. So I created this plugin considering all that and with a vision to make your visitors keep on coming to your website. This plugin lets you have a beautiful maintenance page for your visitors.
2. Now the best feature of this plugin is how it can be configured to let your users use the website usually based on their user roles. You can actually configure who can bypass the maintenance page. This way if you want, your fellow Editors, Authors, Contributors or even logged in subscribers can actually visit the site like usual. Set the permission level to admin and only your website administrators will have access to the website. All others will be seeing your maintenance page. Set it to Authors and your Admins, Editors and Authors will be able to use the site while all the others will be seeing the maintenance page. Like wise for all user roles.
3. Don’t worry your visitors are going to come back. With our plugin, visitors can actually leave their email id for you and can even contact you with their social media profiles. If you’re not interested in email ids of your users, you can choose to display a custom message from you.
4. Make the maintenance page even more beautiful by adding an image you want as the background.
5. Set a custom title for the page. Thus by making the page SEO friendly.
6. Set your Facebook and Twitter profile URLs to display it on the maintenance page.
Here are a few screenshots to show you how it works.
