SOLVED Site Offline -- question about how a site visitor...

  • SOLVED Site Offline -- question about how a site visitor...

    Posted 13 years 2 months ago
    • Hello,

      When an administrator in Joomla switches the site over to "Site Offline"... there is a default screen that says whatever text you place in the global configuration text box titled "Offline Message."

      I'm wondering if anyone knows away that when we select the "On" button for the Site Offline feature... is there anyway to have they directed to an index file in a subdirectory?

      I'd like to create an mini-site... a brochure style site that people see whenever my main site (Joomla site) is set to "Site Offline"


      Example:
      When Joomla site is set to "Site Offline" -- OFF... the domain URL resolves to the Joomla index... just like always.

      When Joomla site is set to "Site Offline" -- ON... the domain URL basically would point to something like: www.yourdomain.com/subsite/index.htm


      I hope this idea makes sense... and that someon has a solution for it.

      Thanks for any assistance you might be able to offer.

    • Makes perfect sense. Like your very own customized sorry I missed you card. I grasp the idea, but how to do it is beyond me.

    • Glad at least the idea is clear... if not a solution :)

      I see it as the full Joomla site is the INTERACTIVE site... and the offline version is the BROCHURE site.

    • Whenever you site is set to offline, I believe that instead of loading index.php, it load offline.php
      so all you would have to do is create a new offline.php file with a redirect code in it, something like
      <script>
      &nbsp; &nbsp; location = "http://www.yoursite.com/";
      </script>

      See if this works...

    • YESSSSSS....

      I went into the BODY code and used the SCRIPT code you recommended... it works perfect.

      So I can now do exactly the 2 versions of the site:

      1) Main Joomla Site -- Site Offline in OFF MODE

      2) Brochure Site -- Site Offline in ON MODE

      Much appreciated!!
