Over-riding the Node Preview button in Drupal Node Edit form

I had to make a pretty easy change so yours may be more complex than what I needed.

I need the user to view a piece of content that had the start on our front page so they could follow the flow from the start. So I had the "Preview" button in the Node Add and Node Edit form re-direct them to the front page.
I found the code I needed to adjust in the node.routing.yml in Core Module Node.

We had a custom module where I put the below code into the MyModule.routing.yml file. I changed the path to '/'. which is the path to the front page.

Gin Theme Menu CSS Drupal 9- Horizontal Menu

Create Menu in Structure.

Place menu as a block where you need it and configure it in "Blocks Layout"

Here's the CSS: (Note: I had to save the css directly to the Gin styles.css for it to work. It would not work in my custom theme)

#block-YourMenuMachineName > ul{
  display: flex;
  justify-content: center;
  list-style-type: none;
  margin-top: 50px;
  margin-bottom: 25px;
  padding: 0;
  overflow: hidden;
  background-color: #333333;
  width: 100%;

Disable Submit Button on Forms PHP with Jquery - Drupal 9

Case use: We had a form that was a memory hog so it took a long time to load the next step. Users kept clicking the Next button which was really a "Submit" button that created a user account, so we had duplicate user accounts being made.
So this solution will disable the button, change the test of the button to "Processing" so users will not keep clicking on it. :)

Your JS file

Mine is in my custom themes folder in a JS sub-folder with the title scripts.js.
