*** Update version 1.2.2 ***

  • 5.6+ compatibility and Registered user permission bugfix

*** Update version 1.2 ***

  • Changes to redirect from render. This is more consistent with maintence mode best pratices and avoids complex issues with page rendering of custom maintenance pages.

*** Updated version 1.1 ***

  • Allow access for specified user groups(ie Clients, Editors) even if they do not have edit rights.
  • Allow for user registration while in maintenance mode.
  • Allow for setting a custom page to be displayed instead of the maintenance mode page.

What's the point of adding all of these options for maintenance mode?

One of the reasons is to allow for use during initial site development.

Clients can have access to the work in progress while sending other site visitors to a "Coming Soon" page or even a registration or mailing list signup.

Another possibility is if a piece of offending content gets posted in several places by rouge editors and the site needs to be taken down while it is checked and the content is changed or removed.

Also there is the simple reason of wanting a more personalized maintenance mode message while taking the site down for maintenance.
