Your own custom maintenance mode for WordPress

Your own custom maintenance mode for WordPress

The custom maintenance mode message in WordPress, during upgrades and installs, is far from beautiful :) Time to change that!

You can do your own page by adding a pure PHP maintenance.php into your /wp-content folder.

Now go and build a nice page !

Just remember that during maintenance no WordPress functionality is available!

Enjoy coding …

I am a full-stack developer. My expertise include:

  • Server, Network and Hosting Environments
  • Data Modeling / Import / Export
  • Business Logic
  • API Layer / Action layer / MVC
  • User Interfaces
  • User Experience
  • Understand what the customer and the business needs


I love programming,  design and know my way around server architecture as well.  I would never feel complete, with one of these missing.

I have a broad range of interests, that’s why I constantly dive into new technologies and expand my knowledge where ever required. Technologies are evolving fast and I enjoy using the latest.

Apart from that, I am a peace loving guy who tries to have people around him that think the same.  I truly believe in the principle: “If you help someone, someone will help you, when you need it."
