    Hi Jamie. I’m about to start developing a new site for a client using WordPress and Canvas. It’s going to be developed from scratch in what will become its permanent live URL. It’s likely to take 1 to 2 months to develop. I want to keep it out of SEO, but then switch that on when we go live. I also want my client to be able to view and help build the site during development, but keep Joe Public (who might be able to make an intelligent guess at the site URL) out. When it goes live all of the site will be publicly available. Please can you advise on best approach. Many thanks Paul

    Hi Paul,

    This will do the trick http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-maintenance-mode/

    Install the plugin. Change its settings to true and bingo :)
