Maintenance Page - ArtsOn.IT
Maintenance Page Deluxe Plus.
DO NOT BUY THIS PLUGIN!!
The support is the worst kind out there, 5 days no answers, and the plugin will crash your shop.
I tried it on magento 1.8

Just installed this extension even though I read the reviews about taking all the site offline, backend as well.
But I did install through connect and it works as described.
I did this:
1. installed from connect with key from this page
2. logged out from connect page
3. went back to backend admin page and logged out from there
4. logged back in and went to configuration and found the 'Offline Mantenace' button under advanced tab
5. opened it up and checked store offline and website status
All works :)

Having Problems Read This
I'm new to Magento so got tripped up by this as this was the first extension I had installed.
Did not read the comments first about clearing cache and logging out and back in etc. So I ended up seemingly being locked out of my site both on the front end and on the backend login page. But it was not the new extension working that locked me out but a default action of Magento.
Here is what I did and it appears to have worked.
With your FTP client
Delete Cache here:
Then remove the “maintenance.flag”
FTP to the root of your installation of Magento and delete the file “maintenance.flag”.
Magento is setup so that when this flag is set, the entire site will be shut down.

Works as it should
Using this on test server, after installed you will need to log out and back in. To find the settings goto -> System -> Config -> Advanced -> Offline Maintenance.
One question, as I have this installed on my test server, will it block bot's from crawling my website. I don't want to lose my ranking.

Not working for me
Not working for me after several tries.
I keep getting this error after installing. Can anyone help?
Fatal error: Class 'ArtsOnIT_OfflineMaintenance_Controller_Router_Standard' not found in /home/xxxxxxxx/public_html/xxxxxxx/src/__default.php on line 17446

Works as described with Magento ver. 188.8.131.52
I'm a merchant and entry level developer at the same time, this plugin works just fine. Just make sure to log out and log in again after installation. You will see menu on the bottom of configuration page.

Simply doesn't work
Installed with the latest version of Magento and after navigating to the plugin, it throws out a 404 error.
No help from Dev team and no luck removing this non functional plugin.
