Updates on the new edit form

Major changes usually come with different sorts of criticism. The new setlist add and edit form was no difference. We've been collecting your opinions ever since the start of the new edit form some two weeks ago and took your suggestions by heart. The edit form should now be both easier to use for novice editors and more efficient for experienced editors. So without much further ado, here are the main changes:

One mandatory step instead of three

It's not necessary anymore to navigate through three steps in order to add a setlist. It's sufficient to  add artist, venue and date in order to create a setlist. You'll then be redirected to the page where you can add the songs, but this isn't mandatory anymore as the setlist has already been created after submitting the initial form.
Previously there was a second step that allowed you to select tour and assign a festival. Now, this step got moved out of the creation process. If autocorrection is enabled (it's enabled by default), the tour will be selected automatically. You can always add/edit a setlist's tour or festival after submitting the setlist or by clicking the "Edit tour & festival" link on any setlist or search result.

New edit setlist component

The edit setlis links got a nice little update. Click the arrow after the link and choose what you'd like to edit.

Hope you enjoy the updates. Feel free to comment on it in the forum.
