Is there a Redirect Mode hidden somewhere within Branda’s Coming Soon/Maintenance Mode features?
I have a dev/staging site that I’m trying to have closely mimic our parent site (for obvious reasons). I have always used a small, lightweight plugin called CGC Maintenance in the past, but would rather avoid any additional plugins if I can. It’s super lightweight and as straightforward as it gets.
The specific functionality that it offers is really what I like about it:
– you can enter in a list of IPs to whitelist, to override the maintenance mode
– you can have it either redirect to a different page within the site OR different/external URL
We had a handful of Beta Testers on our dev site, before going live with the new site. I’m seeing that some of them are still checking out the old site, as well as getting the random traffic hit here and there. It’d just make everything so much easier if I could whitelist our managers & admins and redirect everyone else to the parent site.
Whoah… sorry about that. I didn’t mean to write a novel there… but you get the point :wink:
