I guess you'll have to manually edit maintenance.tpl in your theme's directory.

If i go into that folder, would i be able to see the text im trying to add and simply enter a new line?

Edit line 20 of maintenance.tpl in your theme's directory using whichever editor you use to edit files. Notepad will do. Then reupload the file using your FTP client. Change line 20:

{l s='In order to perform site maintenance, our online shop has been taken offline temporarily. We apologize for the inconvenience, and ask that you please try again later !'}



You can change the message there and use

to add line breaks. In HTML, line breaks are ignored, so you must use that code to signal a line break.

For example, change line 20 from:

{l s='In order to perform site maintenance, our online shop has been taken offline temporarily. We apologize for the inconvenience, and ask that you please try again later !'}



to:

{l s='This is the first line of the maintenance message.'}
{l s='This is the second line of the new maintenance message.'}
