  1. Fatal error: Call to a member function getCfg() on a non-object in /home/ vegasconnection/ administrator/ components/ com_rsbanners/ admin.rsadscategory.php on line 45

    Is this something that needs to be fixed on my end? (non-techie)
    If so…what do I tell my tech person needs to be fixed?

    • We think you are using Joomla 2.5.x. And our component is only currently available for Joomla 1.5.x. Sorry for the inconvenience.
