Maintenance Mode

Introduction #

It is good practice, that when extensive revisions to a u3a site are being made, external visitors are prevented from viewing the site and hence the work being undertaken. A u3a website can be placed into Maintenance Mode by the Administrator, as follows:

Selecting Maintenance Mode #

From the Dashboard, select u3a SettingsMaintenance Mode, this will allow the Administrator to access the screen below.

  • Maintenance mode can be enabled using the selection box, A, in addition a reminder can be placed on the main administration page – this is recommended as it ensures that when maintenance is completed, the mode will be deselected.
  • The Administrator can add a text message, B, to advise external visitors and users with author permission and below, that the site is not currently open. It should be noted that this is mandatory (if no text is required use a full stop or comma).
  • When placed in maintenance mode, an image, C, will be visible to external visitors, a default image will be provided, or a replacement can selected from the media library.
