I'm using Joomla version, 3.4.5, Events Template Version: 3.18 and have enabled Two Factor Authentication for some users.

When I set Site Offline to Yes, users with 2F Authentication can not log in the front-end because the template does not provide any input box for the 2F Authentication data. Logging in the back end (admin) works fine because the default admin template provides an input field for the 2F Authentication code.

Am I missing a template setting or Events template doesn't have any input field for 2F Authentication code and thus there is no way for a 2F Auth user to log in the front-end when the Site Offline is set to Yes?

you can remove or rename that file: templates/gk_events\offline.php
that Joomla will use default one.

:idea: Offline mode is temporary until site is not finished, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks for the reply Oscar.
True! Offline is only temporary and shouldn't be a prob generally, but we have more than one users building the site right now and some of them have 2FA.
