Editing with the new Create Entries page

We pushed out editing of your own entries using the new page with this code push. Please bang on it and let us know if you run into any issues specifically when editing an existing entry.

Known issues:

  • Admin editing of community entries still goes to the old view (this is deliberate, because we have something else lined up for admins)
  • Title still says "create entries".

We keep having a problem where whenever we go to edit older posts, it wipes all but the very first tag (for us, that's usually an authorship tag). We've been dealing with it by copying the tags to a note before going in to edit, and then manually putting them all back in, but it's definitely a bug that we hope gets fixed soon.

Eeeep! I had been dealing with the absence of a "Turn off auto-formatting" option by editing the post once I'd made it, but now I can't even do that. (Well, I turned off beta, edited the post, and turned on beta again. Not ideal.)

Any ETA on that feature?

We're still trying to figure out the best place to put it. In the meantime you can surround whatever bits shouldn't be auto-formatted with <raw-code> .... </raw-code> tags.

...Oh, duh. I knew that. Thanks!

You plan on keeping the existing behaviour, right? An option to check on the actual posting page that remembers your choice? It doesn't really fit into any of the existing panels. Is there something that means you don't want to put it in its own panel? It would be easy to check it or not as you want, and then hiding it so you don't have to deal with it if you never need to change it again.

Yes, it will eventually have place in a pane (we haven't decided if it should be a separate pane or if it should be grouped with some other stuff; there's some new features coming up eventually that will likely make a logical grouping), we just forgot about it when we did the initial draft of the page and haven't added it in yet because we all keep forgetting. :) Pretty sure there's an actual bug for it; if not, it's definitely on the "shit that needs to get done before taking this out of beta" list we're keeping.

1. When I go to "Edit entries" on the side tab it takes me to the old edit page.

2. I have my entries default to Access-Only; when I use the new edit page I can't change it to 'Public.' It still has a minimum security of Access-Only. At first I thought it had already been fixed and then I remembered the two different edit pages.

This isn't necessarily a bug, but it is a darn annoying behavior: when I tab out of the edit pane and hit enter, like I'm used to doing from the old edit page, it takes me to a preview of the post instead of posting it. I'm none too fond of this behavior. I could get used to it, but I'd like for it to just...post, instead of having to remember to tab twice more and always (because I forget) having to close another window.

Three browsers, actually! It was happening with Safari on a 3rd gen iPad running iOS 5.1.1, and also in Chrome Version 21.0.1180.89 on an iMac running Snow Leopard (10.6.8), and then in Chrome on the same hardware running Windows 7 via Boot Camp. (Not sure on the version number for the windows Chrome, since we're in OS X right now and it would take a restart to check, I think.)

If it had just been in iOS Safari we might have thought it was some kind of Javascript issue (the joy of mobile browsers), but since it's also happened on our desktop in both operating systems, I have... no idea what it could be.

A very minor thing and I don't know if I should report it here or on the s2 post, but I'm putting it here for now:

I just noticed that the edit entry page doesn't have a page title - neither in the old site scheme coding or the new s2 one

If it's not too much trouble, could this be fixed/adjusted as well:

Could either the Display Date default be "Use the time when entry is posted" or, if that's not possible/popular, could the user's last choice be used next time as well? I find it really annoying to always have to change the tick-box here (uh well, first world problems and all that ^^), and it seems to be a rather simple thing to fix, as far as I can tell.

(Denise, correct me if I'm wrong here.)

I don't believe this is ever going to be changed. It's a bikeshed problem, where more time is spent arguing about how to implement a fix than the actual fix is worth. There's almost a perfect 50/50 split on that little ticky box - no matter which option they picked, they'd annoy/upset/anger half the users on the site.

You are generally correct! Though, a "remember last state" thingum like we have on many other similarly contested checkboxes is not as much of a disaster, and will likely happen someday.

I was just reading a thread wherein you detailed this exact issue earlier today, so it was fresh in mah head despite the lack of coffee. XDXD A ticky box with a memory is a Good Idea, and I hope that could work for users. I'm in the DON'T YOU DARE UPDATE MY TIME I'LL DO IT MYSELF GDI camp, so I understand how it can be a thorny problem. XD

Yes, that's why I mentioned the memory option. Apart from this bit the new new entry page is awesome. Thanks!

No one wants that, of course - that's why I mentioned the memory option. ;-)

I like the drag and drop functionality to rearrange the layout. However, when I drop the panels, they automatically collapse. I'd prefer it if they persisted the open state I had them in so I didn't have to continually manually reopen them. (They stay open once I save the settings, just while I'm playing around with it, they keep collapsing.) Is that working as designed, or a bug?

The behavior of the +/- button doesn't seem to be quite consistent - sometimes when the panels automatically collapsed as described above the "-" would remain, although when clicked, it toggled the open state as you would expect for one in a collapsed state, even though the button itself was displaying incorrectly. I can't seem to repeat this now but I know I saw it being in the opposite state to what I would expect for the state of the panel.

I don't know if this is just me or if I missed something or if I just haven't looked hard enough, but—

Does the new create/edit entries page have the ability to cross-post to other sites (yet)? Because it isn't doing that for me, and doesn't even seem to have the option to, and I don't know if that's the beta's fault or my fault or what. Sorry and thanks!
