It shouldn't be so hard... I've customised my SilverStripe install to add a SidebarHTML tab to the CMS. The idea is that selected pages I can include a short sidebar. I have the Sidebar tab. I can enter text into the field. Unfortunately when I click 'save' the text disappears!
I must have forgotten something fairly basic - damned if I can see what? Can anybody give me any clues?

Hard to know without seeing your code but have you remembered to add 'SidebarHTML => 'HTMLText' to the db array in the Page class?

If you have checked what Howard recommended (that you have it in your $db array for page) also double check you've run your site.com/dev/build to rebuild the database.

Always do a /dev/build/ so that wasn't it -- but I checked the code against an older site I built before coming back to my post and sure enough - $db array was missing form Page.php
Argghh - *embarassment* - thought I was going mad!!
