Maintenance Mode

Maintenance Mode comes enabled by default when you first receive your site. This feature will display a maintenance screen to any visitors who are not already members of your site (except subscribers), making your site inaccessible to the public while you build out its content.

Once you’re ready to make your site visible to the public, simply uncheck the “Enable Maintenance Mode” checkbox and publish the change.

Google Analytics

You can track pageview statistics on your site by entering a Google Analytics tag into the available field. This tag must be configured externally using a Google account with access to Google Analytics.
