Possible to go site to go "Under construction"?


As I mentioned in an early post I am revamping the look and brand of our site this fall (coos.groupsite.com). 

Curious if there are an option for limiting access to the site during this time and/or creating a pop-up to let members know the site is under constrctuion and announce the launch date of the re-vamped site?


Thank you.

Hi Sasha,

There's no easy way to limit access while your site is under construction. Here are a few options to consider:

- Add a free form text module at the top of your home page announcing that the site is under construction and the launch date.

- Send out an email blast with the relevant information.

- Temporarily suspend all members while the site is under construction and then reverse that when you're ready to launch the new site.  This can be done on the Manage Members page.  Suspension can be done for a large number of members at one time, however, I would recommend one "page" of members at a time.  To suspend in bulk, click the small box to the left of the member name then click the edit button at the top left of the list of names.  Select "suspended" from the status drop-down menu.  Scroll down and click "update", then move to the next page.  

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to email us at support@groupsite.com.
