The new website modules of odoo are great, but I miss deeply one small feature. As in Joomla for instance it should be possible to set the website offline. Without this feature I can hardly imagine, a company will be very happy, if for intance they already uses the ERP function and wanting to start build the their website, that the whole procedure of building this site is possibly going on in public. Or are there any workarounds?
This feature is not missing anymore, I've developed a module to get site in maintenance mode when needed.
The module is available from my github repository https://github.com/shingonoide/odoo_ezdoo/tree/master/addons/website_maintenance
I have some users which needs turn website offline until is ready to public and think this module do the job well.
I hope it helps you too.
P.S. If you think the answer was useful, please up vote my answer.
I can't find the module "website_maintenance" or similar in the apps list or community modules list in Odoo. At the moment I'm not able to access the server via FTP in order to load there custom module on this even if our Odoo instance is running in a server we have acquired (not SaaS).
Anybody knows if there is any changes on this by Odoo official team? This seems to be core functionalities in most of CMS Systems that you can hide the site or individual pages while you are editing them and building a site. It's a very crucial and basic feature, and in this way it should be a core functionality, not something that people need to make as a custom functionality.
