Are you working on your new site or want to set an existing site to maintenance mode? Visual Composer Premium comes with a Maintenance Mode add-on available in the Visual Composer Hub right after the plugin activation process is completed.
It allows you to set your site to maintenance mode at any time.
Forget about additional plugins or tinkering with the code. Create the design of your maintenance page right in the Visual Composer editor and set this layout to serve as your maintenance mode page. Create stunning maintenance mode pages with countdown timers, full-height backgrounds, parallax, or video effects.

- From the drop-down menu select the page to use for the maintenance mode;
