404 Error

Why do I receive a "404 Error. Page not found." when I try to select anything other than FancyBox in Light Box type?
Asked by: adviti
Go To System -- Permission -- Roles And access Admin role, include the password and save the role. This will cascade admin rights to all the extension. Good Luck!

Rated out of 5 by from Awesome extension. A tip for others - if you already have the most recent jQuery library and no conflict mode set up prior to adding this extension, delete the jQuery 1.7.1 and 1.4.3 files otherwise you will get javascript errors. I removed those 2 js files and it works perfectly. Also, in configuration if you get the 404 error, just log out and back in and it will work perfectly. Thanks again for the terrific add on!
