Functional offer

This discussion is related to the Maintenance Mode addon.

It would be very convenient if frontend available for administrator.

    Hmmm... This doesn't really prevent the site from executing anything but the render code. I was able to submit a new discussion to my test server when this is enabled.

    It would be better to check for a maintenance permission much earlier (probably right before/after the dispatch) and redirect to a maintenance notice page if they don't have the permission. You would have to have an entry page available for users to log in.

    Would also be useful to have an inform message saying the site is closed to the public.

    More or less the design I was going to implement. Now I just have to find the time LOL :)

    Go ahead, it will take me a while. I first have to finish the "Thanful People EX" plugin (which I plan to rename, since it became so different from the original one).

    You can take this one. ;)

    I need to get Yaga released; I have a feeling it is never going to get out of beta.

    EDIT - OK, I started it here: https://github.com/hgtonight/Plugin-AdminMode
