Any good & current recommendations for Maintenance Mode/Coming Soon plugin?

Yes, I’m lazy, I have a basic .php template page I could use and customise each time, but I liked the lazy toggle on/off, put a nice picture/text on to keep client happy plugins. Especially if they’re a client who wants lots of updates/peeks at the site development.

All the ones I’ve used/tried recently are way too bloated installing their own block builders, breaking WordPress default templates, just overkill or produces a lot of errors.

The old version of “LightStart” (before it changed its name), used to be perfect, nice and easy Active/Deactive, could put a picture on to suit the client, put some text on, but now it’s just too much overkill and I don’t trust it anymore.
