The Maintenance plugin allows the WordPress site administrator to close the website for maintenance, enable the “503 Service Temporarily Unavailable” error, and set the temporary authorization page, which can be edited via the plugin settings. It is highly customizable and looks good on all devices due to the responsive layout. You can add your logo, background image, text, and select the desired color to preserve brand identity. The extended version of the plugin includes more settings that become available upon installation of the PRO extension plugin. Check out the PRO version – a feature-rich maintenance plugin for WordPress

Ich habe das Plugin aktiviert, sehe aber keine Veränderungen. Sieht aus, als würde das Plugin nicht funktionieren.

Versuch es in einem anderen Browser. Und: solange du als WordPress-Benutzer eingeloggt bist, siehst du die Website im normalen Modus.

Wird meine Website für Suchmaschinen sichtbar bleiben, während der Wartungsmodus eingeschaltet ist?

Die Website wird für Suchmaschinen nicht sichtbar sein. Die Serverantwort „503 Service Temporarily Unavailable“ kann in den Plugin-Optionen geändert werden.

Wo kann ich den Benutzernamen und das Passwort für den Zugriff auf die Seite herausfinden?

You can use your administrator access or create new user in wordpress dashboard

Warum zeigt die Seite „wp-login“ einen Fehler an, obwohl ich meinen Benutzernamen und mein Passwort korrekt eingebe?

No, it will be display error on current maintenance page, without redirect to wp-login page

Ich habe auf meine Frage keine Antwort gefunden, was soll ich tun?

Du kannst ins Support-Forum schauen oder uns eine E-Mail schicken.


Does what it needs to do.

The free version has some limitations. But it does exactly what needs to be done.
I guess if you use it more often the pay version has some nice extras.


This is the best maintenance plugin in WordPress
