Coming Soon Plugin

Before I put the site online I used the coming soon plugin from Brian Teeman available at: This plugin shows a nice "coming soon" page with countdown if you want to, and makes the page accessible through a secret word parameter instead of login data. That makes it easy to show your site to others before launch.

Browser detect Plugin
