Before you read the post, keep in mind the two reasons for the existence of this post:
NOTE: This is NOT to start a flame-war about MUSE or BC. I do appreciate both products and will continue to implement them in our projects for our clients. I just have a real issue right now with the level of attention and communication we're receiving concerning this matter with regard to the dire circumstances it's presenting to my company and our current and potential clients.
The Story thus far:
The problem we had started Thursday evening with transferring our site (created in Muse) over to the BC system. We are currently a "Free Partner" looking to become "Premium Partner" with the Business Catalyst system. Currently we also have a couple of other clients on the Business Catalyst system as well.
After transferring over to the BC system, we spent the entire day Friday trying to get the email for the Admin account working. Finally reached Rajan in Live Chat with BC. He was unable to help.
Finally, at Rajan's suggestion we submitted a ticket through our partner account. Within 20 minutes, we were no longer able to access our Partner Portal for Business Catalyst.
So, now, not only do we not have access to email for the admin account, but cannot get into the Business Catalyst system to implement and create anything at all for ourselves or clientele. This presents not only a communication problem as it relates to email, but we have clients as well as prospects that are expecting updates, maintenance as well as proposals for projects that are upcoming and ongoing.
As you can imagine it is of vital importantance that we get some response IMMEDIATELY from SOMEONE within the BC system to set things right.
So, again; we're here to see if there is any similarities with someone else's experience with MUSE / BC or if this is entirely unique as well as to hopefully, possibly get someone's attention within the system to make enough noise with connections at Business Catalyst to get this resolved quickly so we can all move on productively.
By the way, since we don't have email, ironically, the only way at this time to contact us is through the forums or via the business line at 847-367-5600.
Thank you for your time and patience in this matter.
Alright. Problem has been resolved.
Thank you to Mario, Alex, Brad, Liam and everyone else on the BC forums who took the time to get involved in this issue and get it resolved for us. Much faith has been restored in the BC System as well as the Muse product.
On another note, it seems that Muse is having issues with connecting with sites we create vie the "Manage" button within the interface. Is this a bug or something still under development?
Thanks for getting back to me on this, but as stated earlier, the problem is resolved. Not sure what was done on the BC end to get it resolved, but the helpful peeps at BC and on this forum were able to help get us back online and rolling steadily forward.
Annnnd… we're back!
My bad. Thought this was related to the BC login issue.
Ok, the Muse issue is when we hit the "Manage" button within Muse to connect to BC, it returns an error and won't connect. We then go into the preferences to "reset" the login. But no success.
UPDATE: Just got off with very helpful chat support and got this link logon link for the business catalyst partner portal http://www.businesscatalyst.com/admin/Index.aspx?to=PartnerPortal since I no longer had a tab when I logged on with my sites. Worked great for me and thanks to adobe for a quick answer to my problem.
I just started playing around with Dreamweaver, Muse, and BC today. I've had two problems. The first is that is that the BC panel in dreamweaver stopped working. And then after deleting my test sites several times I no longer have a partner portal tab when I log into my sites. Very frustrating especially since BC is suppose to eliminate such frustration. I want to delete both test sites and start fresh with a template on the partner portal but I no longer have that option.
