XF 1.1 Blank page while installing addons/rebuilding templates. Can I stick something there?

    I would kill to be able to display something during that blank moment. It tends to freak people out and there is never any good time to do it because people are always on :(

    Yep.

    That is possible with some modifications to the code. You would have to set a flag in the database during a rebuild and then check that flag when rendering a page. This would make a good suggestion for a future version.

    Could you make something like this?

    I'm pretty sure many users would pitch in some money for a modification like this. I would.

    I could if I had time. I am swamped.

    Well I don't think there is any rush.

    Would you be able to fit this into your plans, within this year or early next year, and what would something like this cost, etc.

    This is something that bothers me as well. I wish there was a more convenient way to tell users to not panic. The .htaccess file method in the other thread is clever though, thanks Jake for that.
