Removing a Confluence page redirect with a timeout of 0

So I goofed. I merged two pages and was trying to create a redirect page for one of the merged pages, and mistakenly set the redirect timeout to 0 seconds and set the redirect link to the redirect page. The result is the redirect page redirects to itself every zero seconds, making the page impossible to edit.

Suggestions?

Hi,

could you describe how you configure a "redirect page"? This doesn't seem to be a Confluence feature out of the box. Are you using any addons / macros?

I followed the instructions here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/confkb/how-to-redirect-confluence-users-to-a-new-url-976758203.html

 

Only getting the URL and time out values incorrect :-/

Hi,

oh, I got it.

You can use a link which allows directly editing the page:

https://<host_name_here>/pages/editpage.action?pageId=XXXXXXX

I assume that you can find out the pageId from the URL.

Yeah, I don't know the pageID. The URL I have is of the form https://<hostnamehere>/display/SOF/<friendlyname>
