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!

Hey - I'm having ongoing issues where when I create a post, it hides the icon options and the crosspost options. I get the little headers that says "Crosspost" but the "crosspost this entry" is grayed out and when I do post, it doesn't cross. I also can't pick an icon because that box is just...gone.

I'm using Chrome 34. As a note, when I tried to create a post in Safari it worked just fine, so I am a confusedbecc. This may be a browser bug, as Chrome's been a major pain in my ass lately, but thought you should know?

I thought it might be; Chrome is being really annoying lately :( Thanks though!

So, I don't know if this helps or not, but I have discovered that if I use the beta page I still have that problem - BUT if I change my "posting to" option to a different community I get the icon options and the crosspost options again, and then if I switch back to my journal those options remain.

I also discovered earlier that if I post the entry, then go in and edit it, I get the icon/crosspost options.

Chrome is driving me batty.
