jQuery Form Plugin Won't Submit

I am building an application with a lot of jQuery that runs on Sean Corfield's Framework 1 in ColdFusion.  A lot of forms in the application use jQuery to submit via ajax and validate client side using the Vanadium library.

I recently decided that to unify the forms a little better I would add the jQuery Form plugin.  I thought it was working for a little while, but now I am noticing that the validation in my function runs just fine and then nothing happens after that... the ajaxForm function never runs.

I am submitting the form by using an a link that runs submitForm('formid') onclick.  I found  that I when I used a href="javascript:submitForm('formid') it would actually navigate to www.domain.com/submitForm('formid').
function submitForm(formid){
	$form = $('#' + formid)
	alert('Form with ID of ' + formid + ' was submitted.');
	// Show the form loader
	$('#' + formid + ' .form-loader').fadeIn('slow');
	$('#' + formid + ' #main-advice').remove();
	// Validate the form... just in case
	Vanadium.validateAndDecorate()
	// Check if the form has any errors
	if($('#' + formid + '.vanadium-advice').length){
		// If so then add an error message
		$('#' + formid + '.formBlock').prepend('<span class="vanadium-advice" id="main-advice">Please review errors below and then submit again.</span>').css('align','center');
		$('#' + formid + '.form-loader').fadeOut('slow');
		return false;
	}
	try {
		$form.ajaxForm({
			success: function(){
				alert('Hello World');
			},
			error: function(e){
				alert(e);
			}
		});
	} catch(e){
		alert(e.description);
	}
	return true;
}

Found out that all ajaxForm() does is setup the form to use Ajax upon submit.  I needed to use ajaxSubmit() to actually submit the form.
