How to create an “Under Construction” page at WordPress


I’m sure all bloggers, at some point, had to put their page for a short time as “under construction” either because they were not ready yet or because they wanted to make some changes.

I recently found myself in a similar position when I wanted to make a change to my blog theme. So I searched for a similar plug-in that will cover my needs.

Web Factory’s Under Construction Plugin is easy to distinguish in this category with more than 90,000+ active sites and more than 500+ great reviews while at a glance at the Developers tab we will see that the plugin is receiving updates very often which is extremely positive and important.


This plugin is extremely friendly to beginner WordPress users so there’s no way anyone can get into their settings.

After completing our installation, in the Settings -> Under Construction menu, you will see the main setup menu.

From this, we can enable or disable Under Construction, set a date to stop viewing our under construction page and enable visitors’ logging through google analytics.
