How to show the process of the development on coming soon mode. (off line)

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
I need to show to the customer the process of their website, but when I create one user to login to check this, I have this issue:
1 - If I set the user as "registered group" he can't access to see the website.
2 - If I set the user as "manager group" he can access but also he can see the "edit page" on the top and he can access to the BP menu (I don't want this)

So how I can set the user to only access to see website but without see the edit page button

Off-line mode - gives access to webmasters with administrator rights.

So I guess you have to use a different method, I mentioned it a few times on the forum, but I repeat again

1) Do not use Off-line or Coming Soon mode
2) In SPPB Pro create a Page which will replace it (with text, countdown, login module etc.)
3) Set it as default homepage (with public access)
4) In Menu - set almost all menu items for registered users only

Sound simple? Yes, and it works.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for you help, I understood you steps, but if this method what all of your templates offer have the same request for all of your customers, so why you don't listens them and do a simple thing to fix to the way as we want as a client, and not to do another 4 steps to get something what you don't provide but in the template exist one coming soon what is absolutely unuseful (or may be one only use, when you have the web done and want to do a launch date, this case I think is unuseful in the 99% of the cases, because as developers we need a coming soon mode similar as the old way "site under construction";)
Any way your 4 steps is only create a personalised site under construction page..

I wish to help more, but as you noticed last Helix update was some time ago.
So my solution can be implemented faster.
