  2. Pak het uit en upload het naar /wp-content/plugins/
  3. Open WordPress beheer – Plugins en klik op ‘Activeren’ naast de plugin
  4. Activeer en open de instellingenpagina van deze plugin, in het hoofd WP beheer menu


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?

Deze site zal niet zichtbaar zijn voor de zoekmachines als “503 Service Tijdelijk Niet zichtbaar” optie is ingeschakeld.

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

Je kunt je “normale” WP beheerder gebruiken of maak een nieuwe gebruiker aan in het WordPress dashboard – Gebruikers.

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.

Ik heb geen antwoord gevonden op mijn vraag, wat moet ik doen?

Please post the question on the support forum.

Pro Version costs a lot of money and is not working at all. They say it is responsive but actually you will have to work a lot to become themes responsive! Video Background is not working neither. Buttons are there but they will not work, especially the support button! The support is not telling the truth until you ask 5 times! They will not give you back the money neither telling you that after 7 days it is not possible the reimburse... As an agency we believe that we should maintain a certain honesty on this platform!!!

It worked, but it was impossible to login. I even tried to empty the memcache that I use. Still didn't work. I wonder where the login credentials were sent. Unfortunately a waste of time. Another thing I didn't like was to just get flashed with the three pricing plans directly without even having used the plugin. When I went to the plugin settings, that came up. Very annoying. If it at least was after a week of using it. I wouldn't recommend anyone to download this. It seem to add problems above the single problem that it needs to solve.I had ChatGPT create a maintenance mode plugin for me instead, a very simple one but it worked. Here is the prompt:"Please write me the full source code for a Wordpress plugin that handles maintenance mode on and off. When it is on, the user will be redirected to another page where there will be only a red text in the middle of the page saying that the site is in maintenance mode and only admins can access the site. If the plugin is disabled, then it shouldn't be seen for normal users."

La version gratuite me suffit. La prise en main est immédiate et en à peine 2 minutes, mon site est en maintenance avec une superbe page d'accueil personnalisée.
