I've gone through the tutorials on setting up and extending a site with SilverStripe. I added the news section like the tutorial said, however when I go back to perform the same basic action of adding a new field to the "Page" page, upon saving or publishing the ajax loading graphic just spins like it can't save. I added a masthead image field and below is my code, if anyone can help me I'd appreciate it. This is the last thing on my to-do list for this site and I was hoping it would be easy. Thanks.

(Note: the calltoaction function works perfectly).

class Page extends SiteTree {

    static $db = array('Masthead'=>'text');
	static $has_one = array();
		function getCMSFields() {
			$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
			$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new TextField('Masthead', 'Masthead Image'), 'Content');
			return $fields;
class Page_Controller extends ContentController {

	function CallToAction(){
		$cat = DataObject::get_by_id('Page', 15);
		return $cat;

I believe you need to have Text instead of text. FieldTypes are case sensitive I would assume

Thanks willr, that was the issue.
