RE: Cannot view 'Tech specs' in reviews...

Well i've deleted all temp files, cookies, cache history etc. and re-booted laptop and logged back in here. (Firefox on Win 7 Pro)

'Tech specs' still not working on some reviews. ("You are not authorised")

Same problem when using IE9. (Whether logged in or not.)

So it only happens with some reviews and only to some people (Gel had the same problem) and does not seem browser specific.

I have just tried it on Safari on my iMac (without even being logged on to the site) and it failed there too. So it is not userid specific.

I cleared all cookies and cache on my iPhone and switched off wifi to make it use 3G. (In case it was affected by ISP or IP address) I did not log in to the site and it still fails to access tech specs for some reviews but some others work ok.

Weird.

This has happened before...

A review actually consists of three documents - the product, its specs and the review itself, and in order to put the review up all three need to be published.  There were *supposed* to be measures in place to prevent any one being published without any of the others, but it was broken when I left.

So one of two things has happened; the person who published it forgot to publish one of the bits, or the person who published it wasn't supposed to but published one of the bits inadvertently.

It seems somebody has published the specs now though rather than unpublish the review, which suggests the former...

Well, we've checked at this end and I'm told all the components of the reviews in question are correctly connected: have punted the problem up to our Digital Media people.
