Adding tags to Status Plugin

Hello, Just purchased WPMU Status Plugin to enable Front-end posting. Could you please help me configure tags functionality to the status update? Thank you!

    Ok, I figured it out with the help of this post http://www.cozmoslabs.com/5528-wordpress-post-from-front-end/

    dashboard-widget.php
    <p><label>Tags: </label><input id="fep-tags" name="tags" type="text" tabindex="2" autocomplete="off" value="<?php esc_attr_e( 'Add tags', 'simple-fep' ); ?>" onfocus="this.value=(this.value=='<?php echo esc_js( __( 'Add tags', 'simple-fep' ) ); ?>') ? '' : this.value;" onblur="this.value=(this.value=='') ? '<?php echo esc_js( __( 'Add tags', 'simple-fep' ) ); ?>' : this.value;" /></p>

    I wasn't sure where to put the simple-fep function so I just installed the plugin.

    class_wdqs_admin_pages.php

    function create_post ($data) {
    		//if (!current_user_can('publish_posts')) return false;
    		if (!$this->_check_permissions()) return false;
    		global $user_ID;
    		$send = array(
    			'image' => $data['thumbnail'],
    			'no_image' => (int)$data['no_thumbnail'],
    			'height' => (int)$data['height'],
    			'width' => (int)$data['width'],
    			'link_title' => @$data['link_title'],
    			'link_text' => @$data['link_text'],
    		);
    		$text = $this->generate_preview_html($data['data'], $send, true);
    		$title = @$data['title'] ? $data['title'] : $this->_get_default_title();
    		$category = $this->data->get('post_category-' . $this->_link_type);
    		$tags = @$_POST['tags'];
    		$post = array (
    			'post_title' => $title,
    			'post_content' => $text,
    			'post_date' => current_time('mysql'),
    			'post_status' => @$_POST['is_draft'] ? 'draft' : (current_user_can("publish_posts") ? 'publish' : 'pending'),
    			'post_author' => $user_ID,
    			'post_category' => array($category),
    			'tags_input'	=> $tags,
    		);

    widget.js

    var title = $("#wdqs-post-title").length ? $("#wdqs-post-title").val() : '';
    	var tags = $("#fep-tags").length ? $("#fep-tags").val() : '';
    	var thumbnail = ($(".wdqs-image-list li:visible:first").length) ? $(".wdqs-image-list li:visible:first img").attr("src") : '';
    	var no_thumbnail = ($("#wdqs-no-thumbnail").length && $("#wdqs-no-thumbnail").is(":checked")) ? 1 : 0;
    	var height = $("#wdqs-height").length ? $("#wdqs-height").val() : 0;
    	var width = $("#wdqs-width").length ? $("#wdqs-width").val() : 0;
    
    	var link_title = $(".wdqs-title-container h3 a").text();
    	var link_text = $(".wdqs-text-container p").html();
    
    	var is_draft = $(e.target).is("#wdqs-draft") ? 1 : 0;
    
    	var $root = $("#wdqs-dashboard-widget").parent();
    	$root.html('<div class="wdqs-waiting-for-response"></div>');
    
    	$.post(_wdqs_ajaxurl, {
    		"action": "wdqs_post",
    		"is_draft": is_draft,
    		"data": text,
    		"title": title,
    		"tags": tags,
    		"height": height,
    		"width": width,
    		"thumbnail": thumbnail,
    		"no_thumbnail": no_thumbnail,
    		"link_title": link_title,
    		"link_text": link_text
    	},
    function callPreviewUpdate () {
    	var title = $("#wdqs-post-title").length ? $("#wdqs-post-title").val() : '';
    	var tags = $("#fep-tags").length ? $("#fep-tags").val() : '';
    	var text = $("#wdqs-status").val();
    	var height = $("#wdqs-height").length ? $("#wdqs-height").val() : 0;
    	var width = $("#wdqs-width").length ? $("#wdqs-width").val() : 0;
    
    	$("#wdqs-preview-root").html('<div class="wdqs-waiting-for-response"></div>');
    	$.post(_wdqs_ajaxurl, {
    		"action": "wdqs_generate_preview",
    		"text": text,
    		"title": title,
    		"tags": tags,
    		"height": height,
    		"width": width
    	}

    Perhaps that will help someone. Apologies for dirty copy & paste. Also, I'm sure there is a better way to do that...
