Submit A Form With A Button Outside The Form

You can tie a submit button to a form that the button doesn’t live inside of. The trick is to give the form an id and then reference that id with the button’s form property.


  
    Name:
    
  

  

  Submit

With this setup, clicking the Submit button will cause the form to be submitted.

See the MDN Button docs for more details.
