My site is ready and migrated to live and all working but is there a way i can hide the public side until my client has managed to add his content?
Make another (blank) template with some "Welcome, we are soon ready to open here, check back soon"-text.
Choose this template on your frontpage-node. Then, when people visit, they do not see the "real" site, but they do not get an error message or umbraco message either.
thanks Brian, just what i was after...
This will only hide your home page - all other pages would still be viewable (albeit only by guessing the URLs).
If you right-click on the Home node, and choose "Public access", you can protect access to the whole site (it cascades down from the Home node). You would also need to make sure you have a login node somewhere with a standard ASP.NET login control on it, and choose that page as the "Login page" and "Error page" in the "Public access" dialog.
NB This may not be the best approach if your site already has protected content areas, but it's worked fine for me.
This topic might also have some good suggestions: http://our.umbraco.org/forum/core/general/24016-Under-construction-page.
