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!

In the last couple of weeks when I create entries with the beta create page, I can't load tags with the Browse button and the crossposting is selected, but it doesn't select where to crosspost to. If I edit the post, I can load the tags and select for crossposting, but not when I create a new one. Has something changed? This is happening on multiple computers (but always in Chrome because that's my usual browser)--both Mac and PC.

...and I didn't scroll down far enough. I see the others, and I will just hope Chrome updates again soon and maybe fixes it. Thanks! Sorry!
