submit_button( $text, $type, $name, $wrap, $other_attributes );
The text of the button (defaults to 'Save Changes')
Default: null
The type and CSS class(es) of the button. Core values include 'primary', 'small', and 'large'.
Default: 'primary'
The HTML name of the submit button. If no id attribute is given in $other_attributes below, $name will be used as the button's id.
Default: "submit"
True if the output button should be wrapped in a paragraph tag, false otherwise.
Default: true
Other attributes that should be output with the button, mapping attributes to their values, such as setting tabindex to 1, etc. These key/value attribute pairs will be output as attribute="value", where attribute is the key. Other attributes can also be provided as a string such as 'tabindex="1"', though the array format is preferred.
Default: null



#1 Demo

submit_button( 'Apply', 'action', '', false, [ 'id' => 'doaction2' ] );

// output:
// <input type="submit" id="doaction2" class="action button" value="Apply">

#2 Secondary button display

WordPress designs the main button and the additional button differently. The main button is blue and stands out more, the additional button is gray and is not as eye-catching.

By default, submit_button() outputs the main button. To display a secondary button instead, set $type = 'secondary':

submit_button( __( 'Reset', 'textdomain' ), 'secondary' );

#3 Displaying the delete button

By default, there are no styles for the delete button in WordPress. However, this may change in the future, so it's best to specify $type as 'delete' when displaying the delete button:

submit_button( __( 'Delete', 'textdomain' ), 'delete' );

By default, the delete button is styled as a secondary button, not the primary button. If you want to display it as a primary button, you can do it as follows:

submit_button( __( 'Delete', 'textdomain' ), 'delete button-primary' );

#4 Using the $name Parameter

The parameter $name can be used if you want to set the HTML attribute name for the button. The default value there is submit.

submit_button( __( 'Save Settings', 'textdomain' ), 'primary', 'wpdocs-save-settings' );

By default, $name is also used to fill the attribute id of the button. To change this, you can pass id through the parameter $other_attributes:

$other_attributes = [ 'id' => 'wpdocs-button-id' ];
submit_button( __( 'Save', 'textdomain' ), 'primary', 'wpdocs-save-settings', true, $other_attributes );

#5 Using the $wrap parameter

The $wrap parameter determines whether the button is wrapped in the <p> tag, which is the default. To disable this behavior, pass false for the fourth parameter:

submit_button( __( 'Submit', 'textdomain' ), 'primary', 'submit-form', false );

#6 Specifying other HTML attributes

You can add any HTML attributes for the button - using the $other_attributes parameter:

$other_attributes = [ 'tabindex' => '1' ];
submit_button( __( 'Go!', 'textdomain' ), 'secondary', '', true, $other_attributes );
