It is extremely difficult to work on your website when this plugin is active. Whether you are logged in or not, you will see the maintenance page constantly. It will block the login page. Very, very annoying.

Best plugin

I really like this Minimal approach to "coming soon" (or "under construction"). It was much simpler to complete and post than some of the other plug-ins recommended (which sent me scrambling for other options). A very nice selection of background images, too. It would be nice to be able to code some HTML into the headline block. But hey, guess that adds to the minimalism! And for free, I cannot complain! Highly recommend. Result is at (Hopefully not for long! Better look quick!)
