Well, yes... I personally manually work with WordPress all the time, it's the cleanest way to go. But, that defeats the purpose of a plugin, which is to assist people that could never understand how to do that.
I did figure it out for anyone else that also wants to know, I'm going to create a blog post about it because I think it could be very helpful to people that are also just starting out with WordPress Plugins.
I'm not allowed to share that link with everyone, so I don't know if you're allowed to IM me for the code or what? I'm sure a mod will let me know .
