Hi all i am in the middle of setting my site up but i dont want anyone to see it yet so want to serve a coming soon page to everyone but me, i have search the net and found a few .htaccess solutions but can not seem to get it to work with Oxwall. Does anyone know how to do this?

If your site is not yet ready for the public, you can put it to the maintenance mode. During this time, when people visit the site, they will see" Sorry, the site is undergoing planned maintenance. We'll be back soon."
But as admin you can visit the admin panel all the time.
Follow this link admin area>pages and menus>maintenance page and enable "Disable your site and put up the maintenance page". Anytime your site is ready, you can uncheck that link to put your site online.
I hope this works
