With the Spectra 2.0 plugin, you can now redirect the site URL to a particular page. With this option enabled, the visitors on your website will be redirected to a page of your choice when they visit your website. This powerful feature is very useful while updating your website and you don’t want to miss the opportunity to guide your visitors to a page within your website while it is still under maintenance.
When done correctly, redirection is extremely useful. Instead of receiving an error message stating that the page could not be found or the site is under maintenance, you can redirect your visitors to a page that will assist them in finding what they are looking for.
