Input button - Custom New Form -- modal window bootstrap

I have a button on a custom ASPX page that is opening a modal for a Custom New Form
<button type="button" class="btn btn-primary btn-small" data-toggle="modal" data-target="#MeetingModal" href="http://itsusmpw00799:56789/prd/hcctesting/Pages/pharmslt_new.aspx">Add Meeting</button>

Open in new window


This opens the form fine and I can enter all the fields... when I select submit it does the redirect correctly but it is not commiting the values to a new entry in the List. Can anyone advise what component I am missing?  Here is the submit button code

<input type="button" class="btn btn-default" value="Save" onclick="javascript: {ddwrt:GenFireServerEvent('__commit;__redirect={/prd/hcctesting/Pages/pharmslt.aspx}')};"/>
