Last time, we have shown that how can you reset your WordPress website. In this post, we will show you that how can you add a simple WordPress coming soon template on your blog. While we making changes to our live WordPress blog, we must add a coming soon template there.
Add WordPress Coming Soon Page Using Plugin
For this, you may want to use a plugin called IgniteUp. It is a free WordPress plugin for adding maintenance mode in WordPress. First of all, go to the WordPress add new plugins section.
There, you need to search for the Ignite up WordPress plugin.
Now, you need to install the plugin on the WordPress blog.
After installing it, you need to activate it.
Soo, the page will redirect to the plugin settings page. If you are using any caching plugin, you may want to clear your cache.
Now, go to the plugin’s general settings.
You need to enable the maintenance mode there.
If you wish to skip the coming soon page for specific roles, you can do it from there.
Also, there is a secret key available for skipping the maintenance mode and going directly to the home page.
After configuring these settings, save the options.
That’s all. When a user visits your website, they will see a coming soon page from now on.
If you wish to grow your email list, this plugin will be helpful. IgniteUp plugin can connect with MailChimp using an API token.
