I was following different tutorials from the internet and from books, but none of them works.

Let's follow this tutorial (https://code.tutsplus.com/tutorials/custom-back-end-configuration-in-magento--cms-23265)

<?php
class Envato_CustomConfig_Model_Options
{
  /**
   * Provide available options as a value/label array
   *
   * @return array
   */
  public function toOptionArray()
  {
    return array(
      array('value'=>1, 'label'=>'One'),
      array('value'=>2, 'label'=>'Two'),
      array('value'=>3, 'label'=>'Three'),            
      array('value'=>4, 'label'=>'Four')                     
    );
  }
}

app/code/local/Envato/CustomConfig/Helper/Data.php

<?php
/**
 * Sample Widget Helper
 */
class Envato_CustomConfig_Helper_Data extends Mage_Core_Helper_Abstract
{
}

As Result I get this:

But if I click on "Custom Configuration Settings" in the left, then I get this:

How can I successfully add configuration options for my extension?

It works after login out from the backend and login in again. The tutorial creator said, that Magento uses a cache for backend too.


If you still fail to add custom configuration to your module and get the 404 page, then you are probably missing the ACL protection.

You have to add this code to your config.xml:

<config>    
    <!-- ... -->
    <adminhtml>
        <acl>
            <resources>
                <admin>
                    <children>
                        <system>
                            <children>
                                <config>
                                    <children>
                                        <enter_your_section_name_here>
                                            <title>Hello</title>
                                        </enter_your_section_name_here>
                                    </children>
                                </config>
                            </children>
                        </system>
                    </children>
                </admin>
            </resources>
        </acl>
    </adminhtml>
    <!-- ... -->
</config>

Don't forget to clear the magento cache and logout and login from the backend to apply the settings.
