EnableMSDeployAppOffline - AppOfflineTemplate
For WebDeploy you can specify <EnableMSDeployAppOffline> in the .pubxml file but this will generate a default app_offline.htm file that you cannot modify. Just provide an option for a template like <AppOfflineTemplate>
Thanks for the suggestion, I’m looking into this. The thought that I have is to do this convention based. So if you have a file named app_offline-template.htm then we use that file for app_offline.htm. Please let me know if that design doesn’t work for you.
2019 and still no implementation of this simple feature. Shocking.

That would be awesome. Thanks!

Anything more on this? After searching all day, I found your 2012 comment in the IIS forum that this was removed due to a security issue, but that you guys would work to put back in. Now 4 years later...??
Maybe convention by default and this could override. But either way this is a long time missing from VS.

This would be great, currently having a generic one isn't ideal
If this would work in VS2012 Publish Wizard (WebDeploy) this would be a great solution.
