    2. On the main menu, hover over ‘Preferences’ and click on the ‘Maintenance’ link.
    3. To put your shop into maintenance mode, slide the ‘Enable Shop’ switch to no.
    4. To view the shop, click on the ‘+ Add my IP’ button – This will enable you to view the site, even when in maintenance mode.
    5. To take your shop out of maintenance mode, slide the ‘Enable Shop’ switch to yes.
