Set Elementor to Coming Soon

Last Update: September 21, 2023

With Elementor’s Maintenance Mode Tools, you can display a custom coming soon mode page to visitors, and send the right HTTP response to search engines.

Coming Soon Response Code

Setting Elementor to Coming Soon, makes your site tell search engines everything is working as normal, and they can index the website as usual. This is done by returning a response of HTTP200.

(Read the complete Maintenance Mode post here)

  1. Create a ‘Coming Soon’ Page Template from scratch, or use one of our pre-designed templates and publish it. Note: The template hierarchy needs to be set to Page and not Section or other options.
