hi all i need your help please on a bespoke add on that was made for or dev xf test site, basically i exported it and then when i tried to get it to import on a fresh copy it wouldnt work and i got the error attached below
ive traced it down to this code in the xml addon file

<route_type type="admin">
<prefix original_prefix="adverts" class="RTOC_Route_PrefixAdmin_Adverts" build_link="data_only"/>
<prefix original_prefix="directory-categories" class="RTOC_Route_PrefixAdmin_DirectoryCategory" build_link="data_only"/>
<prefix original_prefix="wizard-categories" class="RTOC_Route_PrefixAdmin_WizardCategory" build_link="data_only"/>
<route_type type="public">
<prefix original_prefix="directory" class="RTOC_Route_Prefix_Directory" build_link="data_only"/>
<prefix original_prefix="events" class="RTOC_Route_Prefix_Events" build_link="data_only"/>
<prefix original_prefix="wizard" class="RTOC_Route_Prefix_Wizard" build_link="data_only"/>

ive noticed that when i removed these line above the addon installed but the other attached pic at bottom the rtoc bespoke bar on the left wasnt there and i couldnt get into the rotating ad part from anywhere else that i could see, its strange as i upgraded the original install of xf from v1.3 to 1.4.3 which works but as soon as i try to put the addon on a fresh install as i need to do a complete vb import it wont work without removing these lines of code

anyone help on this, im not a coder but want to get this dev site working fully so we can finally use xf properly and drop the vb site, thanx as always
