WordPress Site Offline plugins are made awesome again with this piece of code. While most site offline plugins are bulky, intrusive and annoying this one is as light as a feather and has no paid options. The nav item is neatly tucked away within the settings menu so it feels like it is part of WordPress.
Hide your website from the crowd
It is super simple to just hide your content for visitors. This plugin covers all the pages, whatever link someone happens to find. Everything is covered. Everything but the admin login form. But if you need to work on your website, just log in and the content will only show for you and your fellow admins.
Track who is visiting your website
With the built in functionality to use Google Analytics or Google Tag Manager you can track how many people visit the website and know what pages are still populair.
Redirect visitors to another website
Don’t waste any traffic going to your site. Redirect them to another site or page to keep people informed. This is nice and all but kind of useless if Google doesn’t know your intentions. So that’s why there is some header information added to the redirect. Now Google knows.
Customise the landing page
At this point in time there are several themes you can choose from to use as a landing page. Add your logo and background to make it even more like your brand. Or just alter the css by using the custom css form.
