Would you consider including a 'maintenance mode' feature in future releases? By 'maintenance mode', I am referring to an option to allow miniBB admin to shut down most operations of the discussion board while maintenance is being performed.
I do not know what other miniBB admins do when they need to take their board offline temporarily, but I try to redirect the forum's home page to a page explaining what is going on. Sadly, however, I do not know how to redirect requests to other forum-related pages to the explanation page. If visitors follow a link to a specific topic in my forum, they get a 404 error. So, I think an option to 'switch to maintenance mode' would be very handy and nice to have.
Thanks for your time.
