New Create Entries beta, round two

The next code push will update the new Create Entries page in beta with a number of fixes for previously-reported bugs and enhancements. To make it easier to keep track, we're therefore opening up a new bug-reporting post (to avoid confusing things with bugs reported in the previous post).

When reporting bugs, please include:

* The browser name, browser version number, and operating system you're using
* The steps you took to reproduce the problem
* Whether or not you've tested the same steps in another browser (and if so, which)
* Whether you get the same result every time you try the same steps, or if it only happens sometimes

If we can't reproduce the problem under the same browser and operating system, we may also ask you for a list of any browser extensions you have installed.

Things that are still not yet implemented:

* the "don't autoformat" button
* the rich text editor
* editing existing entries (it will display the old form)
* draft posts of any type, including autosaving of entries

There are also still some issues with IE, especially in "privacy mode". Anything that requires Javascript is currently not working in IE in privacy mode, and we're trying to figure out if there's something we can do to fix that or if the settings of the browser override anything we can do.

Hi I found a bug!

General description: If posting an entry fails because of timestamp (an earlier timestamp without backdate checked), it bounces back with everything about the entry intact except the date *and the privacy level*

What happened: I opened the update page in tab A to write a private entry. Opened the update page also in tab B to write a public entry. Went back to the first, submit, errored because it had an earlier timestamp; tickied the "use time posted" option, hit submit, and only registered after the fact that it had bounced to public. Opened a new entry, deliberately backdated to 2012 and fuddling with security, with same results.

Switched beta off, tried with the old page, and it preserved the security level (but possibly tweaked the date because then it went through).

(Can't duplicate now because I can't trigger the date error.)

Firefox 23.0.1 on Win8, tropo purple sitescheme if that matters, minsecurity public so I don't know if it bounces it to public or to minsecurity.

January 2015 style revisions do weird things...

Posting here, since it's on topic and I can't find a newer mention of skin changes.

Using the Gradation Vertical Site Skin and the beta Create page, the Privacy and Journal pulldowns are defaulting to white-on-white (links to imgur). All other pulldowns display correctly.
