But still, for the sake of it:

What does the plugin do?

Even gone through a period where something on your website is just not right?

Maybe the UI is completely messed up because of the new theme you installed or perhaps it’s just not working the way you want it to.

What do you do?

Get to work on fixing the website of course, but what about the visitors you get on your website during the aforementioned time frame where you try to figure out what the hell is wrong with your website?

Surely you don’t want them to use the broken mess of the website you have at the particular moment. So again, I ask you. What would you do?

You’d turn to the Under Construction Page Plugin. (Obviously. What else could I possibly talk about in the review of the product?)

The plugin provides an overlay on your website that not only lets the customer know that the website is not functioning quite as it was supposed to but also the fact that you’re currently stressing every sinew in your body trying to get it right. (Maybe I’m exaggerating a bit here. Maybe.)
