  1. Hi, on a maintenace site setting, building the pages, how do i get the rss results visible? Once, live, I want to always have a hidden page with rss results to check feed before it is authorised for live publication. How, if i cannot see the results in maintenance mode, do i see results?

    • Hello,
      I don’t know how you switch your site to maintenance mode, if it’s code in the ‘functions.php’ file or with a plugin,
      check that maintenance mode is only active for unlogged in users.
      This will allow you to check the content of your feeds before formal publication.
      It doesn’t work by adding the ‘.maintenance’ file under the root of your site.
