Author Posts May 2, 2011 at 10:00 am #606234 leonrfreyMember Hey everyone, I’m currently updating my blog after a trial run and while I play around with design and logo/background imposition I want to keep its public accessibility to a minimum. Is this possible? A page of ‘Back soon’ would be great. Thanks in advance! The blog I need help with is manmademeals.org. May 2, 2011 at 11:22 am #606363 airodysseyMember Hi. You can set the blog to “private” if you wish. http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/ But there is no “come back soon” feature as far as I know.

This will not stop the search engines sending you traffic though, direct to posts that meet the search criteria. So it won’t restrict access, but it does meet your “back soon” landing page requirement. May 2, 2011 at 12:21 pm #606368 leonrfreyMember That’s awesome! Thanks for the help!
