Hi I have enabled developer mode and added all the code but it still isn't working?

Also I have multiple forms that all need to go salesforce, how does this work with the field ids as they are different across each form even though they are essentially the same form but re-created on separate pages.

@tajbarr sorry i'm just seeing this - i missed any notifications that you had commented. i looked at your site and there aren't any squarespace forms on there?

i just realized that there's a problem with the code. i think squarespace removed the id's from their forms and made it nearly impossible to hijack them. i'm about to post a fix that instead listens for the submit event and then fires off to salesforce.

Rewrote this to work in non-developer mode. @rwheaton please take a look.
My forked gist

Also, yui ids aren't randomly generated for ones you see with a 'block-yui', 'tex-yui' or other text before the 'yui' portion.
