New Create Entries beta, round two

The next code push will update the new Create Entries page in beta with a number of fixes for previously-reported bugs and enhancements. To make it easier to keep track, we're therefore opening up a new bug-reporting post (to avoid confusing things with bugs reported in the previous post).

When reporting bugs, please include:

* The browser name, browser version number, and operating system you're using
* The steps you took to reproduce the problem
* Whether or not you've tested the same steps in another browser (and if so, which)
* Whether you get the same result every time you try the same steps, or if it only happens sometimes

If we can't reproduce the problem under the same browser and operating system, we may also ask you for a list of any browser extensions you have installed.

Things that are still not yet implemented:

* the "don't autoformat" button
* the rich text editor
* editing existing entries (it will display the old form)
* draft posts of any type, including autosaving of entries

There are also still some issues with IE, especially in "privacy mode". Anything that requires Javascript is currently not working in IE in privacy mode, and we're trying to figure out if there's something we can do to fix that or if the settings of the browser override anything we can do.

Firefox 8.0.1, Windows 7 Starter. Using Tropo Purple. All DW betas are turned on.

I have two "post entry" buttons on the Update2.0 page, one in the previous place (a purple bar at the bottom of the page) and one in the new place with the preview/spell check button.

Also, OMG OMG you moved the preview button THANK YOU THANK YOU.

Ah. This is non-intuitive for me, but something I could get used to. I have my modules carefully arranged so that they don't go lower than the horizontal border of the update box (sidebar only, no bottom modules), and so I have two buttons VERY visible. For a minute I couldn't decide which one to push. (I'm still a little leery about pushing one. *eyes it*)

The (old) "Edit Entries" page doesn't have the option to change the icon for the entry. Or I'm blind, that can also be the case. At least it used to be on the top-left next to the date? Tried it with IE7 and FF 3.6.24 so I don't think it has to do with my FF add-ons.

In addition: I edit an entry, then save it. The entry now uses my default icon instead of the icon I chose when I first posted.

I love the new changes! Having headers, different colors and a second post entry button means I can finally use it. I still wish the headers were a bit more distinctive but the current design is a good compromise.

One tiny thing I noticed: some space is missing between the spell check button and the post entry button(Windows 7, FF 8)

Edit: this is only if I turn on the new JS beta testing, not the update one.

You must have replied as I edited it. Yeah this is because of the jquery beta.

Yep, I think I have jquery beta on as well. I have both features on the beta feature page turned on. *embarrassed*

Well, I'm glad I found a bug for you then ;)

I am trying to make a post but I am not allowed to select an icon to use -- that has disappeared. The default automatically shows.

I *love* the fact that the post entry button tells me which community I'm posting to. Seriously, I don't know if it's new but it's amazing. However, the second, lower, bigger button doesn't. Maybe it could too.

The new changes make this updated create entries page very feasible for me to use it.

The Wonderful:
+ The higher post entry button.
+ The subtle background on the the modules.
+ The slightly lighter headers in each module.
+ Better spacing in each module for its contents.
+ The first post to button showing which community you're posting to.
+ Increased focus on design elements. The subtle shadow inset in each textarea when you use it, the inset headers with css shadows.
+ Beautiful transition when you select "another user".

The Dubious:
- No margin space in icon module between browse and random.
- No place to choose a community to post to. I had to go to the community page and pick to post to it.
- No margin space between spell check and post entry.
- Create poll would still look better as a button.
- Go to settings would look good as a button as well, perhaps a small ? icon image that would take you to your settings page. That's pretty universally accepted. Or reusing the settings wheel icon (maybe a smaller version) next to it.
- Still wondering how long usernames look in the POST AS: ()NAME ()ANOTHER USER section. Do long usernames drop the ()ANOTHER USER down to the second level?
- When posting to a community, and selecting 'another user', the post to button changes to a regular post, and the community doesn't clear. So we're still posting to the community, but it doesn't reflect it anymore in the post button.

Above all, it looks great [personal profile] fu, definitely a huge leap in the right direction. I could see myself using this.

I'm confused. Weren't the modules supposed to be movable?

Just in case this isn't what you've done as it's not obvious at all: you can only move them when you're in config mode so when you click on the little wheel icon in the upper right corner, next to the Create Poll link.

Ah, thank you! That really is a bit counterintuitive ...

Also strange: the modules display completely differently for me in IE and in FF. In FF, I get three columns beneath the entry box; in IE I get two columns, with the tags taking up the whole width of both columns.
