It is not just a message. Only administrator/s can the forum see when you are under construction. Your members will not access your forum if it is marked to yes.

They seem to have disassociated the url from forumotion and are using an externally hosted static html page.

Hi,

You could do similar via creating a new HTML Page, setting it as your HTML Page as your home page.

I suppose there may be a JS Code to cause a URL To redirect it to that page as well.
Admin panel >> Modules > HTML Page > Create new > Set as home page = Yes, use forum header/footer (That site has said no, but if u want, you can)
Insert the text & save.

This is only a suggestion / complement.
if no improvement I usually use Picture.
for example: http://i1090.photobucket.com/albums/i366/bie25/under-maintenance.gif
if you want to be like that,
Arrow Display > Colors > CSS Stylesheet.

dan pastikan CSS option benar

add this code in Css :
Code:
html {
height: 100%;
background: url (http://i1090.photobucket.com/albums/i366/bie25/under-maintenance.gif) no-repeat center 50%;
margin: 0;
}
body {
display: none;
}

add a picture at the URL address you want.
then click Submit / Send.
remove the code again if you have completed repairs,

Ok, Hopefully helpful

Good point, but I checked and they haven't done that, because their forum seems to actually have been hacked when I enter .foruomtion.com instead of .com (Oh, the irony!)
