Can't download some ebooks... Answered

Hi,

I can download a lot of ebooks but I've problem with 2 : https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-CNC-1/?download=ebook and https://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-Projects/?download=ebook

When I click on PDF or EPUB button, response is like this:

<Error><Code>AccessDenied</Code><Message>Access Denied</Message><RequestId>44666D57EC548F0A</RequestId><HostId>c5gRbIBZZZRGLDLSQMi6wUdbrTbrdvu8RxK8jUcN8EPPvTIL7IRiIdn/819zudIw</HostId></Error>

It means I can't have acces to those ebooks... is it an error on your server or is it a volutary restriction ?

Used platform is Linux Mandriva and browser is Firefox 17.0.1.

Regards.

It's a mix of bug and permissions - You need to be a pro member to download an ebook, and there should have been a pop-up to let you know that.

Woops, sorry, it's the lack of pro badge on profiles now.

In that case it's a bug - if you can edit the topic to move this to bugs, and include details like your browser and operating system, then the back-room boys can get on with fixing it.
