Skippy, thank you, very well said. I totally understand where you are coming from and appreciate your assistance.
Whether you believe me or not, I actually planned to "get professional help" tomorrow after I'd tried a few more things. The one benefit of repeated postings - and I was very cognizant of going overboard, sorry if I did - is that it keeps the thread at the top of the board, in the hope, as in this case, that a kind soul like yourself would stop by and step up. I haven't tried the plugin yet, but, even if it doesn't work, I hope you enjoy the Weird Al Ultimate Video Collection I just sent you ... as a small token of my appreciation, if not for this, but for what have done for others as a WordPress developer.
Podz, do you have a wishlist also? Or a Paypal addy? I'd like to throw something your way, too, for that round of emails we traded in the wee hours this morning. Thanks for the effort, it's why I don't want to abandon this platform, at any cost.
