Hi there!

Im wondering if anyone could help me!!?

I am trying to find a way to stop the form submitting when you press enter / return when filling out the text boxes?

Any help much appreciated!


Simple jquery can help

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.4.1/jquery.min.js"></script>

$(document).ready(function() {
	$('.sqs-block-form').on('keypress keydown keyup', function(e){
       if(e.keyCode == 13) { e.preventDefault(); }

I'm hoping you can further help me with the same issue. In my Squarespace 7.1 website form, I want the enter / return button to simply act as a tab keystroke to allow my audience to put in a list of names into a text field without prematurely submitting the form. I used the code you suggested above but it resulted in fully disabling the enter/return button. Do you have any suggestions on how to modify the code? Thanks!
