How To Fix ‘Wordpress Briefly Unavailable for Scheduled Maintenance. Check Back in a Minute’
Have you ever come across the message ‘Wordpress Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance’? It is something that I have seen many times while blogging on my website. I am sure you have also seen it. It is a message that appears briefly on your screen when there is some sort of technical glitch on the WordPress site. Usually, it goes away by itself after a few seconds or minutes, but sometimes, it does not go away and remains on your screen for quite some time. If this happens to you, there is a way to fix it. Here is how to do it.
1: Open your browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox or Chrome)
2: Go to www.wordpress.com
3: At the top of the page, where it says ‘Sites’, click on ‘Sites’

5: When the new page comes up, you should see a small blue envelope icon at the top left corner of your screen
6: Click on that icon
