Working with Advanced Settings

Default settings will work for most of the users. Still, there are a few advanced settings that might help you control your website while it’s under construction.

Advanced Settings

Settings -> UnderConstruction -> Settings -> Advanced

Send no-cache Headers

Send no-cache Headers

If you want to be sure browsers don’t cache your under construction page and users see the normal site as soon as you disable UCP – enable no-cache header. The trade-off is a barely noticeable speed loss.

Disable Feeds

Disable Feeds

“RSS (Rich Site Summary; originally RDF Site Summary; often called Really Simple Syndication) is a type of web feed which allows users to access updates to online content in a standardized, computer-readable format.” (RSS on Wikipedia)

Prevent any access to your content by disabling content feeds such as RSS. All access rules apply.

Disable RPC

Disable RPC

“In distributed computing, a remote procedure call (RPC) is when a computer program causes a procedure (subroutine) to execute in a different address space (commonly on another computer on a shared network), which is coded as if it were a normal (local) procedure call, without the programmer explicitly coding the details for the remote interaction.” (Remote Procedure Call on Wikipedia)

By disabling RPC, you can prevent 3rd party apps from interacting with your site. All access rules apply.

Disable REST API

Disable REST API

“Representational state transfer (REST) or RESTful web services are a way of providing interoperability between computer systems on the Internet. REST-compliant Web services allow requesting systems to access and manipulate textual representations of Web resources using a uniform and predefined set of stateless operations.” (REST API on Wikipedia)

By disabling REST API, you can prevent 3rd party apps from interacting with your site. All access rules apply.

Redirect to URL Instead of Displaying UCP

Redirect to URL Instead of Displaying UCP

Instead of showing the under construction page users will be redirected (HTTP code 302) to the specified URL. All access rules still apply – those who are whitelisted in any way will see the normal site and will not be redirected.

Enable 3rd Party Shortcodes & CSS/JS files

Enable 3rd Party Shortcodes & CSS/JS files

This option is turned on by default, and it will allow you to use 3rd party shortcodes & CSS/JS files that aren’t part of UCP. If you want to embed a map or another contact form that’s generated by a different plugin, leave the option enabled.

If you’re not using 3rd party shortcodes and are having problems with plugins adding CSS/JS code to your under construction pages – disable this option.

Affiliate Cookie Lifetime

Affiliate Cookie Lifetime

A lifetime in days for affiliate cookies after which they expire and actions are no longer attributed to that affiliate. The industry standard is 60 days, but you can change this to anything you want.
