This plugin, when activated, will show a maintenance page to all visitors who are not logged in on the admin side of Textpattern. Requires Textpattern 4.0.6 or higher.


  • Very small, due to efficient reuse of TXP internal functions (less than 250 bytes of PHP code)
  • Detailed documentation in the plugin help.
  • Users logged in on the TXP admin side, can still view the website normally. After all, it’s harder to maintain a website if you can’t see what the result is on the front end.
  • Customizable ‘maintenance mode’ template.
  • Sends a “HTTP 503 Service Unavailable” response when in maintenance mode, telling Google spiders to come back later instead of indexing the maintenance page.
  • Minimal interface. Activating and deactivating the plugin is all you have to do to make it work.
