Why does changing submit button to image break this form?

On this contact form I have a submit button which I want to change to an image. The code for this button currently looks like this: <input type="submit" id="aiContactSafeSendButton" value="' . JText::_('COM_AICONTACTSAFE_SEND') . '" style="float:left; margin:2px;" />

When I try to turn it into an image the contact form no longer submits. Below is the new code for the button that breaks the form.

<input type="image" src="images/send-button.jpg" id="aiContactSafeSendButton" value="' . JText::_('COM_AICONTACTSAFE_SEND') . '" style="float:left; margin:2px;" />

Any ideas on what is causing this or a workaround?

Thanks

Can you try this?

Instead of putting the src="images/send-button.jpg" in the input tag...

Why not put it in the template.css as this:

 
#aiContactSafeSendButton {
background-image: url('images/send-button.jpg');
}

Open in new window


Or something similar to that...

First I would check to see if there already is a #aiContactSafeSendButton declaration in the css already.

Thanks! That did it. The final code looked like this after a little tweeking:

#aiContactSafeSendButton {
  width: 150px;
  height: 100px;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  border: 0;
  background: transparent url(../../../images/send-button.jpg) no-repeat center top;
  text-indent: -1000em;
  cursor: pointer; /* hand-shaped cursor */
  cursor: hand; /* for IE 5.x */
}
