WooCommerce: Disable Keyboard “Enter” on Checkout Page
Interesting issue. A client found out that if you push the “enter” on your keyboard while on the WooCommerce Checkout page, the form will be automatically submitted. Ouch! What if the customer wanted to use a different shipping method? What if “enter” is pushed by mistake? So, here’s how you disable it.
Just go to the official WordPress Plugin directory here to download it.
…and the checkout form page won’t submit with the keyboard enter!
Where to add this code?
You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (before "?>" if you have it). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such delicate files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free WooCommerce Customization video tutorial.
Does this snippet still work?
Please let me know in the comments if everything worked as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting on PHP 7.
