Solved maintenance mode help

Post by lilsoph on Mon Dec 27, 2010 5:49 pm

is there a way to have your forum under maintenance (construction) mode and still allow staff to log in (ie. our designers, moderators and what not)?
thank you for any help Smile

Like Sanket said, only Admins are allowed to sign in to the forum. To enable this mode:

ACP > General >Forum > Configuration > Forum in construction: Yes

You can also change what it will say when people go to your forum. Hope that helps!

Since this thread appears to be solved, I will lock this thread and mark it as solved.
