TMM Maintenance Mode version 2.0 released!

You might recall my post from 4 years ago where I sought out the perfect WordPress maintenance mode plugin. Well, I have been using TMM Maintenance Mode regularly since then, and I’m happy to announce that it has received its first big update that will further simplify your maintenance mode experience with none of the advertisements and feature bloat of other leading plugins.

Version 2.0 builds on the simplicity of the previous release and adds:

  • A simple image uploader to replace the default “Down for Maintenance” image. You previously had to replace the image in the plugin file, itself.
  • A basic html field that allows you to change the default “Come back soon…” message. Yes, it accepts html markup.
  • An on/off switch that allows you to decide whether or not you want the site hidden from public view. This is a feature I find helpful when developing on staging, because:
    • Sometimes I need to temporarily open up the staging site for my client to view.
    • Sometimes I just need the blaring red color to help me know I’m on a staging site.
  • The blaring helpful red colors remain the same, so you’ll never be guessing if you are looking at the staging site or not.

There actually aren’t any other features. 🙂 Like I said – simple and works out-of-the-box without any configuration.
