I want to add a field to the "Edit User" area.

sapphire/security/member.php needs to be extended.

I created a file in the mysite folder but it does NOT work.

How can I add a field?

<?php

class UserCustom extends Member  {

	function getCMSFields() {
		$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
		$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Foobar', new LiteralField('CustomCodeFoobar','<h3>Foobar</h3>'));
		return $fields;

	}

}

?>

blubb

create a new File "MyMemberExtension.php" in the folder mysite

class MyMemberExtension extends DataObjectDecorator {

	/**
	 * Define extra database fields
	 *
	 * Return an map where the keys are db, has_one, etc, and the values are
	 * additional fields/relations to be defined
	 */
	function extraStatics() {
		$fields = array(
			'db' => array(
				'MyExtraDBField' => 'Text'
			),
			'has_one' => array(
			),
			'defaults' => array(
				'MyExtraDBField' => 'awesome default text'
			)
		);
		return $fields;
	}

	function updateCMSFields(FieldSet &$fields) {
		$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Foobar', new TextField("MyExtraDBField", "My Extra DB Field"));
	}
}

and then add the following line to your "mysite/_config.php"

DataObject::add_extension('Member', 'MyMemberExtension ');

i hope that is what you are searching for, and i hope it works, i kinda copied it from the Forum Module but didn't tested it
