Help! We just screwed up our wooden dining table.

It's a solid wood table with a dark stain that recently developed a pretty bad crack (thin, but 8" long) in it, we think due to the changing temperatures.
We bought some DAP plastic wood
which worked well to fill in the crack, but left some residue and bleached some of the dark stain in the surrounding area. When we tried to clean up the residue, it only made things worse.
We're thinking about using a good wood surface cleaner and a wood stain marker like this
, but aren't sure if that will just make matters worse.
We love this table and are hoping to get some thoughts on where to go from here. Photo here
