SPFF in SP2010 - am I missing something?

I'm attempting to use the queryl string method in the URL to prepopulate portions of a form, but am having some difficulty understanding and troubleshooting.

  1. I've added the latest js.min and the spff.js files to a location on the SP site.
  2. I've edited the NewForm.asp to add a Content Editor with the following code in the HTML section:

 

<script>
$(function(){
	$.spff();
});
</script>

 

Unfortunately I am getting mixed results:

  • What does work:   appending "?Title=SAMPLE"
  • What does NOT work: appending "?Qty=123"
  • What does NOT work: appending "?Title=_"   This last method does not hide the field like I assumed.  Instead it prepopulates it with an underscore.

I've tried reading on how to troubleshoot for days, but alas I might simple be missing some fundamental code somewhere.
