Hello everyone and welcome to the WordPress version of MiniGO, a distinguished minimal coming soon page with a fair bit of sophistication. MiniGO is all about being neutral and letting your under construction page shine through the background you choose. It’s very easy to set up and customize, you can be online in less than 5 minutes after purchasing. You just add the included plugin zip file to WP, change the admin options to suit you and you’re done.

With this WP Plugin you will be able to work on your site/theme while your visitors see the under construction page. When you’re done just disable it in the MiniGO admin and your new site will be live. You can then keep using it whenever you need to take your site into maintenance mode.

While it’s deceptively simple (as it should be) a significant amount of work has been put into it and we hope it shows in the details. You will be able to customize a ton of options from the plugin admin panel without any need to code but also have the ability to do in-depth customisations with the help of the included SASS source files for advanced users.
