I have a currently deployed site with Sitefinity 3.7 (and am very happy with Sitefinity CMS!), but I have blocked the online store for the site with urlrewrites until the store itself is ready. At present, any requests for store/... are redirected to a holding page. This works well for me in a production environment, but I'm unable to 'develop' those pages on the production server since every time I click on a page in store/... in the backend I ALSO see the redirected holding page. :-(
Is there a way to have urlrewrites with conditions like excluding Administrators or a specific IP? The manual is a bit sparse on this. I'd love to find a way to do it that doesn't involve redeploying the entire site on the server, but if that's necessary I'll certainly go that route since the current situation isn't very workable for me either.
rule excludeGroup="Administrators" excludeIP="xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx">
Perhaps there's another way to do it that won't involve changes in the code?
In any case, working with Sitefinity has been a pleasure. The pages are easy to maintain, the site performs well so far, and I don't feel burdened with the administration. Thanks for all your hard work to make a product that lets me focus on my website, and not my website's CMS!
