This was one of the first plugins installed on our WP, and so it should be. Sorts out your web presence while still working on initial launch. Kudos.

This is my favorite under construction plugin because it is very simple and easy to use and also free. But in last two weeks it has caused problem in my website twice. But I hope developers "WP-brigade" will solve this problem.
