Site Maintenance Mode

Learn about enabling and disabling maintenance mode for your website

Updated over a week ago

If you want to make changes to your Uscreen site without disrupting your customers, you can put your storefront under Maintenance Mode. Doing this will display a "Down For Maintenance" message on your site, preventing customers from making purchases or viewing your content while you work. This way, you can make the necessary changes without worrying about any interruptions or issues on the customer's end.

Toggling the Maintenance Mode on or off:

Navigate to Website and click on Advanced in the editor side panel.

Then scroll down to Maintenance Mode and you can toggle the status:

Admin's Access

As an admin, you will have full access to all pages, and the storefront will appear as if it were live. So when you navigate to your storefront, the website will not display as under maintenance.

If you want to confirm that Maintenance Mode is enabled, navigate to Storefront at the bottom of the sidebar and Sign Out from your account. The Down For Maintenance page will replace your site's page. To log in again, simply click on Admin Login.

Visitor's Access

When a visitor tries to access your site, the Down For Maintenance page will be displayed. Even if visitors try to log in, they will return to the same maintenance page.

NOTE: Maintenance mode is only needed if you have an active customer base. If you are currently in the beginning stages of developing your storefront, you do not need to use maintenance mode because customers are not actively looking at your site.
