FS#402 - Putting the site in Maintenance Mode does not prevent 404 errors sitewide

Scenario: Admin puts website in Maintenance Mode. Search engines and users access website using indexed and stored urls such as:

http://domain.com/login

They get 404 Error Page cannot be found and header and footer load normally.

This is just one of so many URLs that the Maintenance Mode does not redirect to the Maintenance Mode page.

The website put in Maintenance Mode must let search engines know that this is a temporary state, not sure how to communicate 503 status.

404 Not Found simply put is that the server has not found a matching page and pages will be removed from the search engine’s index.

The website needs to be put on a 503 state while it is down for maintenance and this needs to be communicated to search engines somehow.

Please see: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2616?__hstc=103427807.d9bf05570c90b0d8177c4e894df3a291.1488349862009.1488349862009.1488349862009.1&__hssc=103427807.1.1488349862010&__hsfp=3478827707
