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!

this is not a complaints post, this is a "hnnnnnnnngh omg why did I not get the beta create entries page sooner it is so sexy I love you guys hnalkfns;ldkfj;" post.


there's that.

(seriously, the drop-down tags is so much better than the auto-fill and was my only real beef with DW's old create entries page, and the whole drag-and-rearrange-or-hide thing solved a problem I didn't know I had EVERYTHING IS BEAUTIFUL)


I actually had been waffling on whether to renew my paid account because I crosspost to LJ and all my discussion/commenting goes on there, but one look at your new create entries page vs the migraine-inducing travesty that is LJ's and I immediately went and bought a new 12-month.
