So random question but here it goes...

To check on my projects I always go to the book project page then click BC admin under the MW to load the magic window. However the other day I saw a login for bc/mc on the workflow page. I clicked it and logedin but I could not open my projects it kept saying no permission. Is that a MC only area or can I use it and i'm just doing it wrong?

That should work fine to log in.

What project did you try to get into?

Try clicking the magnifying glass icon instead.

OK.

The link you try to click on that you get the permissions error is the database entry, that only MCs can access.

From that screen, you can use the Forum URL link (which you know already) and the Section Compiler using the magnifying glass icon, as Lymie said. (This will only work if you are the BC or DPL; if you're just a reader, you'll get the permissions error here also.)

The Catalog URL takes you to the catalog page when the project is complete, and I think takes you to the forum thread when it's in progress.

Thank you both! What a time saver.
