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!

No custom filtering?

So I'm suddenly not able to select custom filters from the beta version. My filters still exist, and I can pick them if I turn off beta testing, but for whatever reason, they're not available from the new page anymore. Not sure if this should actually go through the normal support channels or not since it was working and stopped, but the page said to report issues here.

Ahh, there we go, I should've thought of that, thanks!
