    Nice and easy to use plugin. Create your own maintenance page, set it and forget it.

    Works fine, does what it says on the box and you can customize the maintenance page to your liking: what more could one ask for? Very good work, and the developer is responsive and attentive to support requests.

    It would be great if we could see the maintenance page without logging out (like the preview of a page in the CMS).

    After uploading a background image, removing it to try another image, uploading a new one didn't work anymore. I got the alert: "Error uploading file: File is not valid", might be filesize/resolution related. I made the image-resolution smaller, and it worked again. Also the hsv() support seems to lack on Chrome. Please use rgb() in the color picker (seems more logical).

    HI Derek, Can you give me the whole error message, so I can fix it. Please put the code on the Support forum :)

    Thank you.

    Immediately after download I went to click on Maintenance settings and got bug errors for non-existent columns in a table uploaded by plugin. Will give thumbs up if re-download fixes this.

    It works now thanks

    I know... I went there in another browser not logged in and it does nothing. I will certainly give this a thumbs up when I can get it working but...

    @Mike H: You can only see the maintenace page when you are not logged into the admin panel. :)

    So far this has not worked at all... No maintenance page ever comes up...
