    Hello everyone,
    I've been trying to make a plugin, that as a part of it, will generate a YAML file and fill a heck of a lot a values inside of it. Here's the problem - I've successfully generated the file, but there's nothing inside! I'm was using this:
    component.set("block." + args[1] + "." + args[2] + "." + args[3], blockID);
    Unfourtionatly, I found that it's trying to set a location that doesn't exist, so it just kind of sits there and does nothing. Then, I tried to use this code:
    component.createSection("block." + args[1] + "." + args[2] + "." + args[3]);
    However, that didn't do anything and now I'm just pretty much out of ideas. Since the file is going to be all different sizes, I won't be able to just create a standard file and have it write to that, because that would be too large or small. If anyone has any idea how I could fix this, it would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you,
    - Nicholas

    64BFox in the first code box: make sure blockID is not null. If it is not, it should be created. Also, as the second case is strange on first sight: do you save the config after that?

    Oh... um... saving the config... kinda slipped my mind... heh...

    Also, thank you for helping me fix my problem!
