Submit Button Element

27/10/2020
IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a Form Element – available only when using the Form Builder in Avada Forms.

The Submit Button Element is the one required Element in a form, as it is a button for submitting form data to a form-handler. All prebuilt forms have one. The Submission Type for your Submit Button is controlled in the Local Form Options.

Location: The edit screen within each Element. You access the Form Builder Elements when adding an Element while editing a Form in the Avada Form Builder (Forms > Form Builder, from the Avada Dashboard).

You can deploy as many individual Elements in your forms as you need, there is no limit.

  • Button Additional Attributes – Here you can add additional attributes to the anchor tag. Separate attributes with a white space and use single quotes on the values, doubles don’t work. If you need to add square brackets, [ ], to your attributes, please use curly brackets, { }, instead. They will be replaced correctly on the front-end. ex: rel=’nofollow’.

  • Alignment – This setting controls the button’s alignment in the container it is in. Choose from Text Flow, Left, Right, or Center. This is now part of the Responsive Option Sets, which means you can set this option independently for Medium and Small Screen Layouts.
