Overview

This article will take you through the process of modifying the Plesk WordPress Toolkit maintenance page. At times you may wish to display a custom message when your site enters maintenance for a long period of time.

WordPress also displays this custom page when you’re updating Themes or Plugins so your visitors don’t see a broken site!

Instructions

  1. Log into your Plesk Panel via the Conetix Control Panel or via Plesk Directly if you have a VPS with us.
  2. Click WordPress in the left hand menu:
    Customising the WordPress Toolkit Maintenance Page
  3. Navigate to your WordPress instance in the now open WordPress toolkit.
  4. Click Setup on the Maintenance mode button on the WordPress Toolkit instance:
    Customising the WordPress Toolkit Maintenance Page
  5. You can now set a custom Browser page title, Text Blocks and Social Network Links:

    Customising the WordPress Toolkit Maintenance Page
  6. Once the above are customised, click OK to save the changes

Now when you update your site or place the site into maintenance for a long period, it will show your custom maintenance page:
