Hello,

You can do this by going to ACP-->General-->Configuration--~>Scroll down until you see 'forum in contruction?', tick this to yes then select the amount of days you need the forum closed for (can only be up to 7 before you will have manually re close it again).

Hope this helps,

-Brandon

I think he wants to know how to create a HTML maintanance page...

Its simple, just make a HTML page, title it h2-maintenance or whatever, and make yourself a nice maintenance page in ACP > Modules > HTML & JavaScript > HTML pages management. Save the HTML page

Then, when you want to put the forum into maintenance simply go to: ACP > General > Configuration > Forum in construction, then in the little box that allows you to add a message, put a javascript redirect to the maintenance page. If your an admin, you don't see that message, therefore don't get redirected.

Here's a Javascript redirect:
Code:
window.location = '/h2-';
'/h2-' is the address of the maintenance page you made. http://prntscr.com/akmr55

Don't forget to save your settings!

Next, to be able to login to your site as an admin, use the URL <yoursiteaddress>/login to be able to login.

Hello Samantha.
