Hello, I am setting up a blog page with silverstripe (as my first site, I'm moving from modx) I want to know if there are any best practices for making changes/additions to extensions that will allow easy updating of the package at a later date?
Can the classes be extended/overridden in additional files in anyway?
I'm thinking something like hooks and overrides/prepend/postpend but for extension mods??
any help in how to approach changes in the most manageable way would be greatly appreciated.

The usual method for overriding modules is to use sub themes for customizing css/images/templates and using decorators for customizing PHP files. Not all functions or objects are going to be decorator-able but you should be able to get pretty far using those 2 methods.
