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!

I just noticed that I can't post to anything other than my own journal on Firefox 30.0/Win7 using the beta page. The "Post to:" shows just my journal, none of the communities I have posting access to, and it's without the drop-down menu. (Chrome is working fine.)

Weird! But I'm glad it resolved resolves itself.
