It would be great to be able to provide a custom 404 or Maintenance page when we are doing work on the forums.

You can customize the maintenance message
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

I'm aware of the Maintenance Mode toggle with text box. However, it is confusing to many as it still allows a login box.  I'd like to hide the login box completely with just a message.

The login box is there for you, not the users.

How you can help SMF

"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum.
Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas
