    Hi there. Thanks in advance to everyone who helps out here!

    I have decided to create my first WordPress plugin and everything seems to be pretty straight forward and the documentation is great. However, I am stuck. :(

    Below is my main plugin file code.

    <?php
    /*
    Plugin Name: The Web Design Toolbox
    Plugin URI: http://www.thewebdesigntoolbox.com
    Description: A WordPress plugin that brings you many tools to easily create web elements. Our goal is to be a one stop solution for all your web design tools.

    ?><?php
    
    // some definition we will use
    define( 'twtb_PUGIN_NAME', 'The Web Design Tool Box');
    define( 'twtb_PLUGIN_DIRECTORY', 'the-web-design-toolbox');
    define( 'twtb_CURRENT_VERSION', '1.0' );
    define( 'twtb_CURRENT_BUILD', '1' );
    define( 'twtb_LOGPATH', str_replace('\\', '/', WP_CONTENT_DIR).'/twtb-logs/');
    define( 'twtb_DEBUG', false);		# never use debug mode on productive systems
    // i18n plugin domain for language files
    define( 'EMU2_I18N_DOMAIN', 'twtb' );
    
    // how to handle log files, don't load them if you don't log
    require_once('twtb_logfilehandling.php');
    
    // load language files
    function twtb_set_lang_file() {
    	# set the language file
    	$currentLocale = get_locale();
    	if(!empty($currentLocale)) {
    		$moFile = dirname(__FILE__) . "/lang/" . $currentLocale . ".mo";
    		if (@file_exists($moFile) && is_readable($moFile)) {
    			load_textdomain(EMU2_I18N_DOMAIN, $moFile);
    		}
    
    	}
    }
    twtb_set_lang_file();
    
    // create custom plugin settings menu
    add_action( 'admin_menu', 'twtb_create_menu' );
    
    //call register settings function
    add_action( 'admin_init', 'twtb_register_settings' );
    
    register_activation_hook(__FILE__, 'twtb_activate');
    register_deactivation_hook(__FILE__, 'twtb_deactivate');
    register_uninstall_hook(__FILE__, 'twtb_uninstall');
    
    // activating the default values
    function twtb_activate() {
    	add_option('twtb_option_3', 'any_value');
    }
    
    // deactivating
    function twtb_deactivate() {
    	// needed for proper deletion of every option
    	delete_option('twtb_option_3');
    }
    
    // uninstalling
    function twtb_uninstall() {
    	# delete all data stored
    	delete_option('twtb_option_3');
    	// delete log files and folder only if needed
    	if (function_exists('twtb_deleteLogFolder')) twtb_deleteLogFolder();
    }
    
    function twtb_create_menu() {
    
    	// create new top-level menu
    	add_menu_page(
    	__('Design Toolbox', EMU2_I18N_DOMAIN),
    	__('Design Toolbox', EMU2_I18N_DOMAIN),
    	0,
    	twtb_PLUGIN_DIRECTORY.'/twtb_settings_page.php',
    	'',
    	plugins_url('/images/icon.png', __FILE__));
    
    	add_submenu_page(
    	twtb_PLUGIN_DIRECTORY.'/twtb_settings_page.php',
    	__("Element Generator", EMU2_I18N_DOMAIN),
    	__("Element Generator", EMU2_I18N_DOMAIN),
    	0,
    	twtb_PLUGIN_DIRECTORY.'/twtb_settings_page.php'
    	);
    
    	add_submenu_page(
    	twtb_PLUGIN_DIRECTORY.'/twtb_settings_page.php',
    	__("Support", EMU2_I18N_DOMAIN),
    	__("Support", EMU2_I18N_DOMAIN),
    	9,
    	twtb_PLUGIN_DIRECTORY.'/twtb_settings_page2.php'
    	);
    
    }
    
    function twtb_register_settings() {
    	//register settings
    	register_setting( 'twtb-settings-group', 'new_option_name' );
    	register_setting( 'twtb-settings-group', 'some_other_option' );
    	register_setting( 'twtb-settings-group', 'option_etc' );
    }
    
    // check if debug is activated
    function twtb_debug() {
    	# only run debug on localhost
    	if ($_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"]=="localhost" && defined('EPS_DEBUG') && EPS_DEBUG==true) return true;
    }
    ?>
    
    <?php
        add_action( 'admin_enqueue_scripts', 'safely_add_stylesheet_to_admin' );
        /**
         * Add stylesheet to the page
         */
        function safely_add_stylesheet_to_admin() {
            wp_enqueue_style( 'prefix-style', plugins_url('style.css', __FILE__) );
        }
    ?>

    And here is a sidebar.php that I pulled into one of my menu items for the plugin

    <?php
    
    ?>
    <ul>
    	<li><h3>The Toolbox</h3></li>
    	<li><a href="#">CSS Button Generator</a></li>
    	<li><a href="#">CSS Transition</a></li>
    	<li><a href="#">CSS Gradient</a></li>
    	<li><a href="#">DIV Style</a></li>
    	<li><a href="#">Paralax</a></li>
    	<li><a href="#">More Tools</a></li>
    </ul>
    <?php
    
    ?>

    I am wanting to create a PHP file for each feature here... So for example create the following......

    button_gen.php
    css_gradient.php
    etc, etc...

    I tried to link to the file with traditional HTML but no luck.

    Am I taking the wrong approach here?
