Fait son travail, simple a configurer et a mettre en place. merci

Terrible choice

By dmckim on January 28, 2023

Wanted to use it to get a quick one-page coming soon up for a client and it's been a miserable experience. Almost zero control over the page layout or design, can't set background images, can't adjust font sizes anywhere, can't bring your own email list gathering form because it breaks literally every other plugin with shortcodes.

This thing is a boat anchor.

I highly recommend LightStart

I highly recommend LightStart - Maintenance Mode, Coming Soon and Landing Page Builder. It's a fantastic plugin that allows me to easily add a maintenance page to my blog, create a coming soon page for a new website, or create a landing page for an existing site. The plugin is user-friendly and easy to use, and I appreciate the ability to set a countdown timer for my visitors. The plugin also works great with WordPress Multisite installs, which is a huge plus. Thank you to the developer for creating such a useful tool!

Bloated and installs additional plugins

By Jayc (jaycgryder) on January 19, 2023

I was looking for a quality maintenance plugin. Instead I got a bloated plugin that adds additional plugins (a page builder) that I don't need & didn't know was being installed. Then they want "anonymous" data collection which you can reject, then on deactivate, they survey.
Looks like the dev has gone down the selling of our information route (even if they say its anonymous - how anonymous and what info is supplied...) as a money maker. I don't mind paying for a pro version, but adding additional plugins without permission is not ok.

New version is very annoying

Used to be the best maintenance plugin, now it's bloated with stuff (a builder) i don't need and keep pushing it to my face.
