    Hi all!

    I’m starting a new page with GeneratePress Premium and a theme called Mellow.

    The site is public right now, and I’ve been asked to remove the content temporarily (2 posts), as the project is not off the ground yet.

    How do I create a “coming soon” type of page with GeneratePress?

    Can I do this without buying some plugin with an annual subscription fee? (We’re on a budget!)

    If so, I’d appreciate any pointers or instructions.

    Many thanks.

    Hi there,

    Do you mean you want the site to be on a coming soon mode without being indexed by search engines?

    If so, there are plenty of maintenance mode plugins, for example: https://wordpress.org/plugins/maintenance/

    Hi Ying,

    Thanks for the link. I see there are lots of plugins, as you say. I’ll try one of these if there isn’t a solution within GP.

    Honestly, I’m not sure what approach is best. I have not done this before. I was thinking of unpublishing the posts and posting a single new post that indicates the product is coming soon.

    The site right now has just 2 articles and probably isn’t getting any traction yet.

    Still, I would rather not undo the look of the site with an under construction page or “504” warning, as some of these maintenance mode plugins seem to do.

    Just wondering if a GP Premium feature might be available that includes a simple page layout that won’t step on the theme I’m using (Mellow).

    Thanks.

    I’m not sure what you are trying to achieve.

    So you do want the website to be published, just not the post?

    If so, you can simply unpublish the post.

    Still, I would rather not undo the look of the site with an under construction page or “504” warning, as some of these maintenance mode plugins seem to do.

    The maintenance mode plugin doesn’t undo your site, it just hides your site from the public and search engines, and the site is still there.
