Maintenance Mode is enabled, but nothing is showing up on Frontend!


Matrix Version:

So I have enabled “maintenance-mode” as described here.

but nothing is showing up on the frontend. Do I need to edit the design file to display the message at frontend?

I know I can do display the message manually by adding this %globals_system_maintenance_message_backend% keyword in design file, but I want to do it via the “System Maintenance” settings.

The manuals are not very clear.

Correct, you need to use the keyword in the design file in order to print it on the frontend. This is so that you don’t get broken designs for things like JSON or XML automatically and you have more control over how and where to print the message on the frontend.
