If you have customized the look of your forum you will need to manually add the new template features described below.

Javascript to prevent accidental deletion of attachments on edit

To prevent the possibility of deleting an attachment when editing a forum post, auto-submitting when pressing the enter key in a text field has been disabled using javascript. To add this change manually, you will need to edit two files, both found in /themes/forum_themes/theme_name/forum_submission/:

Submission Form Template (submission_form.html)

Replace:

<input type="text" class="input" name="title" style='width:100%' size="90" value="{title}" />

with:

<input type="text" class="input" name="title" style='width:100%' size="90" value="{title}" onkeydown="var evt = arguments[0] || window.event; return (evt.keyCode != 13);" />

Replace:

<input type="text" class="input" name="poll_question" style='width:75%' size="90" value="{poll_question}" />

with:

<input type="text" class="input" name="poll_question" style='width:75%' size="90" value="{poll_question}" onkeydown="var evt = arguments[0] || window.event; return (evt.keyCode != 13);" />

Poll Answer Field Template (poll_answer_field.html)

Replace:

<input type="text" class="input" name="option[{n}]" style="width:50%" size="60" value="{poll_answer}" maxlength="120" />

with:

<input type="text" class="input" name="option[{n}]" style="width:50%" size="60" value="{poll_answer}" maxlength="120" onkeydown="var evt = arguments[0] || window.event; return (evt.keyCode != 13);" />
