These things need to be accessible! I spent the last several days using Mac OS 9 (for reasons I won't explain right now) and found myself completely unable to update this.
The "Create entry" link contains an acceptable drop-down menu in most browsers. For some reason, this doesn't work under Mac IE. This I don't really care about; nobody is really expected to test in Mac IE any more.
The problem is that when this drop-down menu does not appear, the link becomes pointless. There's no reason not to link it to the main "new entry" page, and some very strong accessibility arguments for doing so.
P.S. The rest of it I like.
