Figured it out.. If anyone needs help with the same issue, refer here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6819481/using-jquery-tokeninput-without-default-name/6819909#6819909
How can change the default from "id" and "name" to something other than name (in my case its "account_number").
In the video he just says if you dont have "name", youll need further customization and i couldnt find anything anywhere.
