Redirection causing missing permissions for the admin

    We launched our new website so we redirected from old website to new website. Now the redirection has been implemented on the default page which also happens to be the login page.

    Since the implementation of redirection, admin user cant see the edit option and the page after login redirects to the new website.

    We basically want to have the edit permissions back as we are running both websites in parallel at the moment

      I assume that
      1. the redirect is done on IIS level or in the web.config.
      2. old website is olddomain.com, new website is newdomain.com

      So, the easiest way IMHO would be:
      - remove redirect
      - create a page on the old website, say templogin.aspx
      - add the login module to the page
      - restore redirect for olddomain.com to newdomain.com (in a way only top level redirects, not all pages)
      - go to olddomaiin.com/templogin and login

      If you only have the old website for copy pasting content to the new, you could also
      - remove the redirect
      - restore the old website on old.domain.com
      - restore redirect on the domain
      - login on old.domain.com

      Does this make sense?
