MVC and buttons not working

Unsy asked:

Open original thread
Hi guys

I'm new to MVC, so forgive me if this sounds like a silly question:

I am building an application using the template that comes with VS2010 and MVC4 using Razor. My problem is buttons... I have tried
<input type="submit" name="value" value="value" />
<button type="submit" name="value" value="value">Test</button>

but neither of these do anything. No postback screen refresh or anything.

Can anyone tell me what I am missing? It seems like it should be so simple, yet I'm tearing my hair out over this...

As far as I am aware, there should be nothing that would disable these.
