Will it work with my plugins?

Sure! It works 100% with all plugins.

What changes will it make to my site?

It’s not working!!! Arrrrrrrrr

We did our very best to make Under Construction compatible with all plugins and themes, but problems can still happen. No worries, head over to the support forum open a new thread, and we’ll help you ASAP.

How can I work on my site while under construction mode is enabled?

Make sure your user role (probably admin) is selected under Access – Whitelisted User Roles option and open the site while logged in.

How can I log in / access WordPress admin after under construction mode has been enabled?

Enable the Login Button option (found in Content tab), and a login link will be shown in the lower right corner of the under construction page.

How do I add my logo to the page?

Head over to the Content tab and click “Add Media”. Upload/select the logo, position it as you see fit and add other content.

I’ve made changes to UCP, but they are not visible. What do I do?

Click “Save Changes” one more time. Open your site and force refresh browser cache (Ctrl or Shift + F5). If that doesn’t help it means you have a caching plugin installed. Purge/delete cache in that plugin or disable it.

How can I get more designs? Where do I download them?

We update the plugin every 7-10 days and each update comes with at least one new theme/design. There is no other way to get more designs nor a place to download them.

How can I edit designs?

There is an option to add custom CSS. If you want more than that you will have to edit the source files located in /under-construction-page/themes/.

I have disabled UCP but the under construction page is still visible. How do I remove it?

Open your site and force refresh browser cache (Ctrl or Shift + F5). If that doesn’t help it means you have a caching plugin installed. Purge/delete cache in that plugin or disable it. If that fails too contact your hosting provider and ask them to empty the site cache for you.

Is UCP compatible with caching plugins?

UCP is compatible with all caching plugins. However, please note that we automatically empty cache when UCP status is changed only for the following plugins: W3 Total Cache, WP Super Cache, Endurance Page Cache, SiteGround SuperCacher and WP Fastest Cache.
