QuarantineWP will completely lock your WordPress website, put it in Code Freeze state, fully Quarantine state, so no change could be made for Maintenance Mode or migration.

When you acticates it, it temporarily does the following:

  • Disables adding/editing/deleting new content, media, themes, etc.
  • Disables installing/activating/deactivating/updating/deleting all plugins (except this one)
  • Disables new comments/trackbacks on all content items
  • Removes notices to upgrade core or plugins
  • Provides notice to dashboard users that any changes will be lost
  • Provides generally “read only” access to the dashboard
  • Also effective with Gutenberg & Elementor

These changes apply to all users (including admins). When deactivated, full functionality is restored. This plugin makes no database or site changes and has no settings. Simply deactivate/delete when no longer needed.

Activate this plugin on your old site when you’re in the process of changing web hosts to prevent lost data due to delays in DNS changes, or as a simple short-term “lock down” for other reasons. Also can be network activated to apply to all network sites.
