The Maintenance mode does not work.

Thank you

The Maintenance mode does not work.

Admins and Editors can view site even when Maintenance mode = on. Users cant.  Please recheck.

Re: MONSTRA 2.0.0 BETA

Installed the new version here: http://www.playdasher.tk/monstranew/

Everything is working fine so far.

Positive:
Like the new default theme especially the new static header bar!
The theme editor actually saved the theme file.(didn't work before on version 1.3.1 might just be me doing something wrong.)
