Hello. I don't normally work in dreamweaver (so I apologize if I'm not explaining the issue correctly) but a co-worker developed an html form in dreamweaver which is having issues submitting.
Here's the submit button:
<a data-type="submit" class="button" href="thanks.html">send</a>
The code you provided is a simple link to the page thanks.html. As such, there is nothing wrong with it except that a link like that will not pass the data from a form.
"data-submit' is using the new HTML5 developer-defined data attribute. I'm not sure it is used correctly here.
Whether or not the code snippit is correct, the one line you provided isn't enough to see what's going on. You should probably provided the whole code,
A form is wrapped in a submit button, like the code Gramps provided, and a form action pair of tags. The basic structure is like this:
<form action='thanks.html' method='post'>
Your Name: <input name='name' type='text'/>
<input type ='submit' name='submit'/>
