[Solved] Invalid Controller Class

    I'm trying to properly extend an already existing controller (account), but when I try to save the code event listener, I get the following error:
    The Invalid class error isn't very descriptive, and I'm not quite sure what to do with it. Testing some classes that didn't exist, I also got the same error, so I suspect that XenForo is unable to locate my controller, but I have been unable to pinpoint where I've gone wrong with the naming/folder organisation .

    Here is the setup that I've currently got running on my development forum
    My LoadClassController

    class ShortCut_GuidArea_LoadClassController
         * Instruct the system that XenForo_ControllerPublic_Account
         * should be extended by our own class
         * @param string $class
         * @param array $extend
    public static function extendMemberController($class, array &$extend)
            if (
    $class == 'XenForo_ControllerPublic_Account')
    $extend[] = 'ShortCut_GuildArea_guildpage';
    The directory:
    * corresponds to the root of the installation.
    Any / All advice on what's going wrong is greatly appreciated. As for my guildpage class, it works properly (hooray!) if I insert it directly in the ControllerPublic_Account class (boo! bad practice!).

    You are missing an 'l' in the spelling of the class


    class ShortCut_GuildArea_LoadClassController

    Add this to event hint for a tiny performance boost: XenForo_ControllerPublic_Account

    One last question - and I realise that this might go out of the scope of my original question, but...

    How do I go about 'packaging' a template along with my plugin? I looked at template modifications, however I don't see a way to have my plugin create a brand new template with itself.

    Create it within the Master Style and assign it to your add-on.
