Site Maintenance with Modules (WiredDesignz Modular Extension Library) ???

[eluser]Devon Lambert[/eluser]
Hello CIers,

I am trying to create a maintenance module that I could direct my site to for times when the site is under construction OR coming soon. The idea I had was to check the site's online/offline status via a setting in the DB (a la PyroCMS) in an extended library called Public_Controller. However, whenever I try to redirect to the Modules controller, my site is getting caught in a redirect loop??

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Here is the code:

// Check the frontend hasnt been disabled by an admin
        if ( ! $this->settings->frontend_enabled && (empty($this->user) OR $this->user->group != 'admin'))
            //$error = $this->settings->unavailable_message ? $this->settings->unavailable_message : lang('cms_fatal_error');
            // While we test the site, we will display a Coming Soon Module to visitors

The form controller lives under the construction module so I redirect to construction > form. Form's code is below:

class Form extends CI_Controller
     * Constructor method
     * @access public
     * @return void
    public function __construct()
        // Call the parent's controller
        // Set the validation rules
        $this->validation_rules = array(
                'field' => 'email',
                'label'    => lang('email_label'),
                'rules' => 'required|valid_email'

        // Call validation and set rules
        // Modify constants below to suit your needs.
        $email_to = "[email protected]";
        $email_subject = "New e-mail subscriber";

        // This is the email message sent to the subscriber
        $email_message_to_subscriber = "Thank you for contacting us. We will be in touch with you very soon.";
      * Handle the form submission
     * @access public
     * @return void
     public function index()
      * Handle the form submission
     * @access public
     * @return void
     public function submit()

        #Get POST data
        $email = $this->input->post('email') ? $this->input->post('email') : FALSE;
        // Set the email message that is sent to the admin.
        $message = "Form details below.\n\n";
        $message .= "Email: ".$email."\n";
        #Set our e-mail fields
        $data['success_message'] = $this->email_message_to_subscriber;
        #load our view file
        $this->load->view('form_success', $data);
} // End Form Class

I originally had the idea of extending the Public_Controller, but thought this may be what was causing the redirect loop, so I've stuck to extending the main CI_Controller, but to no avail. I know that the Form classes code works because I am able to use it as a controller outside of the module heirarchy; i.e. in the Public_Controller I simply redirect to construction and I create a construction class under the Application's controller folder. So I have to assume that something funky is going on with the modules.

Thanks and thanks again to anyone is can help with this one. :-)

Thanks Insite.

Going to keep trying to do this without using hooks though.

I'll report back once I've found something.
