I am trying to overload my main Page_Controller class from a custom class in a module:

I have made a class module/code/MyPage.php

class MyPage_Controller extends Page_Controller {
....
}

In the module _config.php I put:

Object::useCustomClass('Page', 'MyPage');

Doesn't seem to do anything?

If I put the functions in the main Page_Controller website/code/Page.php then they are available, my problem is seeing that these functions belong to the module I would like to keep them separate but they still need to be available to every Page.

Anyone have any ideas on how to achieve this?

Any ideas anyone?

Even better is there a way to add the methods form MyPage_Controller (module) to Page_Controller (project) been playing with: http://api.silverstripe.com/default/Object.html#addMethodsFrom to no avail.
