I'm trying to setup a section in system>configuration for an existing module which doesn't yet have a section there. This is my first time doing this so I may have missed something.

adminhtml.xml (the code I've added is in between the tags:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config>
<menu>
    <factoryx_menu>
        <title>Factory X</title>
        <sort_order>85</sort_order>
        <children>
            <factoryx_notification module="factoryx_notificationboard">
                <title>Notification</title>
                <sort_order>100</sort_order>
                <children>
                    <factoryx_notification_new module="factoryx_notificationboard">
                        <title>Add New Notification</title>
                        <sort_order>10</sort_order>
                        <action>adminhtml/notificationboard/new/</action>
                    </factoryx_notification_new>
                    <factoryx_notification_list module="factoryx_notificationboard">
                        <title>View Notifications</title>

</sections>

I've managed to get "Notification Board" to show in system>config, but when I click it I get taken to a 404 error. I thought this might be a permission issue, but I changed the file permissions and it didn't help.

I also tried clearing cache and sessions as I read that could be a possible cause.

I've ensured that my role is set to administrator and I have all access.

Thanks so much for taking the time for this

Upon posting this question I proof read it and noticed I had notificationboard instead of factoryx_notificationboard in some places, I've adjusted that and it fixed the issue.
