To control maintenance mode, new tab on Settings panel is added with many options. You can select template for rendering mode message that will be displayed to users who are not allowed during maintenance period. Right now there is only one template and more will come. Also, xScape themes will all support this and will hook into the plugin to add on templates for this mode.

You can set timer and restrictions. Timer is only there to inform users when will be site staring normal work, it’s not used by the plugin to stop maintenance mode. You need to do it yourself. You can use GD Press Tools dashboard widget to enable or disable maintenance mode.
