I am using silverstripe 3.0.3 and Uncle Cheese's EventCalendar module and am trying to add location to the calendarevent using the following tutorial.

After following the tutorial when I try to rebuild the database I get the following error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_PUBLIC in C:\Program Files\EasyPHP-12.0\www\ichars\mysite\code\WorkshopDateTime.php on line 14

Line 14 on the above mentioned page are

public function extendTable()

I know the tutorial is for older version of the module but I couldn't find anything else. Kindly suggest...

Have this working now. This is what I did:
Created a new page CalendarDetails.php in mysite/code/ with the following content:

class CalendarDetails extends DataExtension
	static $db = array(
		'Venue' => 'Text',
		'City' => 'Text',
		'Ticket' => 'HTMLText',

	static $has_one = array (
		'Event' => 'CalendarEvent'

	public function updateCMSFields(FieldList $fields) {

		$fields->push(new TextField('Venue', 'Venue'));
		$fields->push(new TextField('City', 'City'));
		$fields->push(new TextareaField('Ticket', 'Ticket'));

and in _config.php added the following line:

Object::add_extension(‘CalendarDateTime’, ‘CalendarDetails’);
