I'm having trouble adding fields to the Member Object

Here is my PHP

class ClientMember extends DataObjectDecorator {

function extraDBFields() {
return array(
'db' => array(
"ApprovedMember" => "Boolean",
         "CompanyName" => "Text",
         "TaxIDNumber" => "Text",
         "Distributor" => "Text",
         "SalesRep" => "Text",
         "SiteAccess" => "Enum('1', '2', '3', '4', '5')",
         "Description" => "Text"

public function updateCMSFields(FieldSet &$fields) {
   $fields->push(new TextField('ApprovedMember', 'Verified Contact'));
   $fields->push(new TextField('CompanyName', 'Company Name'));
   $fields->push(new TextField('TaxIDNumber', 'Tax ID Number'));
   $fields->push(new TextField('Distributor', 'Distributor'));
   $fields->push(new TextField('SalesRep', 'Sales Rep'));
   $fields->push(new TextAreaField('Description', 'Description'));
   $fields->push(new TextAreaField('SiteAccess', 'Site Access Request'));

Once I add the following line to my _config.php I get a blank page when visiting the site or rebuilding the db

Object::add_extension('Member', 'ClientMember');

Debug doesn't give me an more info.

I want to eventually be able to check login against Approved Member (

Object::add_extension('Member', 'ClientMember');


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

Should do the trick ;)

I must have something else wrong because that didn't do. I think I've come up with a different way to handle it anyway
