I checked out your branch and it looks good to me (for whatever it's
worth). The only few things that I noticed that might need improvement

* `form_name` in checkIndexName() is misleading as a variable name,
since it will contain the ID of an element (maybe form_id would be

* in checkIndexName() you defined:
  [code] var the_idx_name = $("#input_index_name"); [/code]
  but then you use several times $("#input_index_name") instead of
  the cached `the_idx_name` variable (which BTW should be
  `$the_idx_name` because it's a jQuery object and not an
  arbitrary JS variable).

* You copied an pasted the PHPDOC header from the old version of the
checkIndexName() function, which did not take any arguments, so you are
missing `@param` for the function input.

* [code] the_idx_name.attr("disabled") [/code] will never be undefined
(it's a jQuery object now). Those two times that you are comparing it
against 'undefined' are pointless, so you can just remove those 'if'

* missing semicolon after 'false' in this code snippet from
    if ($("#"+form_name).length == 0) {
        return false

Hope this helps.
