new create entries beta

We had the old "new JS on journals" beta reporting entry as the topmost entry in this comm, which was causing some confusion! So, a fresh post for people to report problems they're having with the new Create Entries beta.

Things not yet implemented:

* a WYSIWYG/rich text editor to allow people to post formatted entries

* the ability to save draft entries, both so you can deliberately postpone entries for posting later and so that an unexpected browser crash or problem during the posting process won't cause you to lose work

* admin editing of community entries

* the "don't autoformat" checkbox (we can't quite figure out which pane to stick it in!)

Things that will be documented once it comes out of beta, but some people have missed:

* if you don't like the placement of panels or don't want to see certain panels, you can customize the placement and which panels appear by using the "Edit entry form settings Settings" link in the main toolbar at the beginning of the form.

If you have anything else to report, please let us know here!

hi! for some reason when I was trying to select an icon on the beta create entries page, the icon selection wouldn't take? I tried it on both Chrome and Firefox and it kept going back to default even though it showed as chosen in the "browse" window. the icon dropdown list when i tried to force it that way also had just blank space for any icons that didn't have keywords, instead of pic#...

I can take screencaps if this description isn't enough. Thank you!

Oh, okay! That was the first time it had ever happened to me and it wasn't happening elsewhere so I thought it was related to the codepush. But thank you for answering!
