I'm trying to figure out how to add an option on my CMS editor page, sidebar content. So far I've done this:

function getCMSFields()
{
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
$fields->addFieldToTab(
    "Root.Content.Sidebar",
       new HTMLEditorField('SideContent','Sidebar content'));
      
    $fields->addFieldToTab(
    "Root.Content.Sidebar",
       new OptionsetField(
       'ShowSocial',
       $title = 'Show social widgets on this page',
       $source = array(
          '1' => 'show','2' => 'hide'),
         '1'
       ));         
return $fields;
}

In my page controller, which shows the controls but doesn't save their state when I click save. What am I missing?

You probably need to declare:

static $db = array(); or a $has_one or $has_many relationship titled 'ShowSocial'

Else you are giving the program the interface to do what you want, but you're not giving it anywhere to be saved.
