    Adding blog image to blog module in silverstripe 3.1 Link to this post

    I am trying to add image to blogs in silvertstripe 3.1 with the help of the following code:

    class BlogEntryDecorator extends DataExtension {

    static $has_one = array(
    'BlogImage' => 'Image'

    public function updateCMSFields(FieldList $fields) {
    $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Main", $BlogImage = new UploadField('BlogImage'), 'Content');


    # Edit file: mysite/code/_config.php
    Object::add_extension('BlogEntry', 'BlogEntryDecorator');

    When I try to build database again, I get an error.

    On further research I realized Object::add_extension is deprecated and I have to use something like the following

    - BlogEntryDecorator

    I am not sure about the above code & which file should I put the same in.
    Kindly suggest

    You need to put the new code into a file called config.yml.

    If you have the existing code in your mysite folder, this should be located in a folder in mysite called _config

    Another way you could do this would be to create a mini-module.

    File structure would be:

    your-site-root {top level folder}

    BlogEntryDecorator {second level folder}

    _config.php {third level file}

    _config {third level folder}
    config.yml {forth level file}

    code {third level folder}
    BlogEntryDecorator.php {forth level file}

    The advantage of using the second method is that you can then copy that folder easily into another site.
