Using Solspace User and the {exp:user:edit} form, is it possible to to create an HTML links that has the same function as the button:

<input type="submit" name="remove_photo" value="Remove Current Photo?" />

I can't achieve the styling I want using an input button element.


The key for the avatar to be removed is to submit form data for "remove_photo". This means that you need an HTML form field for this to work. Hyperlinks are not form fields.

You can, however, trigger the form submission with a value "remove_photo" by using javascript/jQuery. The "remove_photo" field can be a hidden field as well. For example, if you had:

{exp:user:edit form:class="user_edit"}
    <a href="#" class="remove_photo">Remove Photo</a>
    <input type="hidden" name="remove_photo" value="Remove Current Photo?" />

You could use a script like this, for example:

$(document).ready( function () {
    $("a.remove_photo").click(function () {
  • That's perfect. Thanks for the very helpful answer. – Benek Lisefski Jan 19 '14 at 1:18
