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.

<?php

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() {
      parent::init();
      
      Requirements::themedCSS("layout");
      Requirements::themedCSS("typography");
      Requirements::themedCSS("form");
   }
}

?>

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.
