I recently downloaded WordPress to build my site. I am fairly new at this and I figured out how to add the Under construction page. When I am working in WordPress, which is happening slowly, I can't view the page, because it always comes up with the Under Construction page. I want to preview it before I make it live. I am sure it's an easy fix, but I am not finding it. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks! Rayna

Hello RaynaKaufman,

Thank you for contacting us about previewing your WordPress site before going live. A good method is to Password Protect the entire site, then turn maintenance mode off.

The site will only be visible to people, after logging in with a username/password. This allows you to work on the site privately, then remove the password protection when the site is ready to go live.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.

Best Regards,
