What does TukuToi Maintenance Plugin do?

TukuToi Maintenance allows you to setup and control a Custom “Under Maintenance” or “Comins Soon” Screen for your WordPress Website.

The Plugin is lightweight and has an Integrated Reading Settings Section allowing you to control all aspects of the Maintenance Screen from the WordPress backend.

You will be able to control the image (or color) of the Maintenance Screen, add a Custom Logo, add a CountDown and a Custom Heading and Footer Text, as well as a Custom HTTP Message and Status to your Maintenance Mode Screen.

This plugin solves the problem of the may Maintenance Plugins which are full bloated Page Builders, instead of lightweight and easy to use, quick to build Maintenance Screens. For more design control, you can still load your own PHP Template (and use all of the Plugin Options at the same time)

How to use the TukuToi Maintenance Plugin?

By default, on install of the plugin, nothing will happen. To enable the Maintenance Mode, you have to check the “Activate” Box in your WordPress (or ClassicPress) > Settings > Reading > TukuToi Maintenance section.

This will by default put your site under maintenance, this means the front end to logged out users will barely display the Theme’s main background image and/or color, but nothing else. A 503 Temporarily Unavailable with 3600 seconds timeout will be added to the HTTP Header.

You can further control this, by adding your own Background Image, Logo, control HTTP Message and Status, as well as add Custom CSS, JS and Header + Footer Texts.

If your theme Interferes with the styling, you have an option do dequeue the theme styles and scripts temporarily.

If this is not enough, the tkt_mtn_template_path filter will allow you to load your own 100% custom PHP template used to render the Maintenance Mode Screen.

Does this Plugin work with ClassicPress?

Yes, this plugin does and will always work with ClassicPress as well as WordPress.
