I wanted to put several client’s sites¬†in a “standby” mode while updating the look, as well as a few little issues it had been having. I found a couple great plugins to do this with. I chose WP Maintenance Mode because it has a bunch of included “down for maintenance” pages designed, that get shown to anyone visiting the site while its active. Ultimate¬†Maintenance Mode is another great option, with out all the theme options, etc. We use the paid version of it for all our “coming soon” and “maintenance mode” landing pages: Seedprod Coming Soon Pro.
