Under Construction Page is a free WordPress plugin that helps you build a maintenance or coming soon page without any technical knowledge. Just by selecting a theme, connecting social media and adding a few details about the page, you can have a maintenance mode up and running in just a few minutes. So, instead of showing an empty page or exposing errors to your visitors, you can act like a professional and show them a landing page that looks amazing.
Whether you want to put the site under construction or pull it out of the mode when you are done with the work, the plugin lets you control everything with a simple button. If you select end date and time, you can let the whole thing to the plugin and worry about more important matters on the site.
Just like you don’t have to code a thing to make this work, you don’t have to be a designer as well. Under Construction Page lets you choose from dozens of fantastic themes that you simply have to select from the list. But, if you like custom pages, you can always personalize the entire maintenance page to your likings. Just add CSS code below the theme and enjoy a custom page unique to your site.
Social icons can be added just by writing unique URLs to your social media profiles. It is important to add contact information so use the other icons for adding email addresses and telephone numbers as well.
By using a standard WP editor, you can quickly write a few sentences about the under construction page. Let your visitors know what’s happening, apologize for the regular site being offline or show them a picture or video instead. This part is entirely SEO-friendly, so you don’t have to worry about how the page will appear in search engine results pages. This is a must-have feature when you’re creating a coming soon page that might stay online for weeks.
If you want specific users to have access to the regular site, it can be arranged through simple options. Any user or user role can be whitelisted. That means that some of them don’t have to be affected by the maintenance page that you’re creating. Instead, they can work with the normal site as nothing happened. Just select a role or write a specific username.
Since the plugin gets updated twice per month, you can expect new features every now and then.
