Adding Logo field to SiteConfig

I am trying to add a Logo image field to SiteCOnfig under SS 3.1. I first followed the instructions on extending SiteConfig at [url][/url] : everything went Ok.
I then changed the lines

private static $db = array(
'FooterContent' => 'HTMLText'
public function updateCMSFields(FieldList $fields) {
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Main", new HTMLEditorField("FooterContent", "Footer Content"));


private static $has_one = array(
'LogoImage' => 'Image',      
public function updateCMSFields(FieldList $fields) {
"Root.Main", new UploadField("LogoImage", "Choose an image for your site logo"));

but it doesn't work. I can select a file for download (no drag and drop area however), but on validating, the screen is not updated to reflect my choice, and while, on saving, a message tells me "saving is Ok, nothing at all is uploaded.

This worked perfectly in SS 3.05.
Thanks for help

Curious, I have Image realtions on SiteConfig extension working fine on a few sites. The fact that field is rendering correctly may be the problem

Just tested your code on a complete fresh copy of the latest stable version (3.1.2), seems to all work perfectly.

Make sure you have run a dev/build (either in the browser http://localhost/dev/build/ or via command line) to ensure the database actually has the column in the DB to save the Image relationship.

I would like to point to this post.

I don't know if it has anything to do with your problem, but there seems to be a (FireFox) issue with 'UploadField -> from your computer' after a CMS reload...
