I'm trying to alter the defaults in the Image gallery page (ie the album width, height, etc). I would like to do so in the config file so that I can upgrade to future versions easily. I believe I can do this through a DataObjectDecorator, but I'm lost on the exact way to do so, and have found little to no documentation. Here is my code this far...


class ImageGalleryDecorator extends DataObjectDecorator {
  	static $defaults = array (
		'CoverImageWidth' => '140',
		'CoverImageHeight' => '140'



Could something like this work? Does anyone have any ideas, or can point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance.

You don't need a decorator for that.


// etc...

If you were to use a decorator, though, you would use:

function extraStatics() {
return array (
'defaults' => array(
// etc..
