I use this on three sites and I love it. Would like an option to disable email and associated scripts for page load time and simplicity, but otherwise great plugin!

I spent ages looking for a streamlined, attractive coming soon page that could collect email addresses. This plugin was the only one that made the cut. Other plugins allow you to collect emails, but this one can be integrated with MailChimp and other email service providers. Incredibly happy with this!

The plugin is perfect for my needs. I wanted to a simple plugin that will direct all traffic to a “coming soon” page, and have premium features like mailchimp integration and a number of options for customization, and tracked by my site’s google analytics. This plugin does ALL that – and it’s free. I have installed and uninstalled over 5 different “coming soon” plugins, including the most popular ones. This is by far, the best. The support from Jascha is AMAZING. Thank you Jascha, and keep up the good work!
