tested in 2.1 on localhost.

works as specified.

however the inform message threw me for a loop.

I'd consider changing ....

from
$Definition['Plugins.AdminMode.DisableLink'] = '<span class="InformSprite Sliders"></span> Site is currently in maintenance mode! ';

to

$Definition['Plugins.AdminMode.DisableLink'] = '<span class="InformSprite Sliders"></span> Site is currently in maintenance mode!, click to disable maintenance mode';

because I couldn't understand why I kept on getting thrown out of maintenance mode - which is what happens when you click on link in inform message.

    I just noticed something strange on this page on the top left corner is a little black box with sliders like on a sound board upon inspecting the code

    <span class="InformSprite Sliders"></span>

    Anyone see this too? What is that ?

    Kind of like the index no index cog , Not sure how useful that is for the general population. I thought it was this plugin causing it coz it does not appear on the main index

    what other page should it be on? if you find it useful. we might be able to add it for you!

    because no one asked minion to place it on the other pages.

    sort of an April fool's joke in July.

    maybe this thread should be closed. since it diverged from it original intent.

    A remark to state the plugin works great, and thank hgtonight for yet another plugin.
    and

    A suggestion for a possibly clearer definition to users of the plugin who might not be aware., (i.e.. if you click on the notification and don't realize it disables maintentance mode.)

    Adding an inform sprite to the body of a message causes it to be rendered on page. Since the class uses absolute positioning, it is placed in the upper left hand corner of the screen.

    Would something like 'Disable Maintenance Mode.' with a more visible icon be more intuitive? I was trying to avoid using more than one line of text.

    Can you add screenshots to the plugin page? It might be useful.

    And I gotta try this (it probably won't work for me though!) @minion - put a skull over computercurtis's avatar.

    After installing this plugin, had to recover forum, having descended to make a backup copy. After removing the plugin, cleaned the cache entry was not available.

    I would appreciate advice on how to correct this error?

    Yes, after the appearance of pop-up message, i pressed him, but to no avail. Clear your browser cache, clear the cache site, remove all information from the file conf.php... the result is zero :o recovery after backup.
    Currently I disabled all plugins. I try to understand what is interfering with this plugin.

    Vanilla is put into maintenance mode via a config option.

    Open up your /conf/config.php file and remove the line: $Configuration['Garden']['UpdateMode'] = true;.
