    DB being overwritten on build Link to this post

    I'm trying to add a custom tab. I've added the code below to add the tab to Page.php and when I rebuild the db it drops all my info and gives me a default build.


    class Page extends SiteTree {
       static $db = array(
          "AnnouncementContent" => "Text",

    function getCMSFields() {
    $fields = parent::getCMSFields();

       $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new TextField('AnnouncementContent'), 'Content');
    return $fields;
       static $has_one = array(

    class Page_Controller extends ContentController {
       function init() {


    At this point wouldn't the added code just add the field in the CMS? Why is it dropping my db?

    OK. I figured it out and it's really stupid. Last week I switched from a Dell to a MacBook Pro. I had accidentally used ?flush-1 rather than ?flush=1. it took me a while to notice it. Oops.
