    Default MrExcel Store - Requires password?

    It seems that there may be a bad link to the "MrExcel Store".
    It is reporting that it is a protected area requiring username and password.

    Where is the link in question found?

    mrexcel.com home page.
    On the left there are a number of links (About MrExcel, Consulting Services etc.) and this is where the "MrExcel Store" link can be found.
    It is still requiring a username and password.

    I will see if I can contract someone from that side to see if anything has changed.

    They said it was down for maintenance, but is back up and running now.

    Thank you for the information.
    It was somewhat suspicious because it was asking for a username and password - that would be sent unencrypted!
    Perhaps next time they should either disable the link or, better still, display a message when it is clicked to state why it is unavailable and for how long?
    Hopefully the MrExcel Store did not lose too much business.
