This was a great exercise. I tried out a few different templates, checked, they looked good, and then I went back to the original template. Then I received an error message, contacted support (who was awesome and responsive) and now my coming soon notice is up and running.
A sidebar is while I was trying to post my question I was introduced to discobot. Discobot led me through 24 activities that taught me how to be a good discussion poster, some cool features and then discobot gave me a giph and a certificate. So, an error turned into a few new lessons.
