Hi all,

I'm using decorator object to add one extra field ( AvatarURL field ) to member table.
In the Security tab, we have four fields : FirstName, Surname, Email, Password.
When clicking on "Add" button, we will see some fields. In those fields, there is my extra field ( AvatarURL field).

I want to display my extra field ( AvatarURL field ) with four fields. That means on the table, i will have FirstName, Surname, Email, Password, AvatarURL. HOW COULD I DO THAT ?

Below is my code of decorator class :

class Deelnemers extends DataObjectDecorator {
function extraStatics() {
return array(
'db' => array(
'AvatarURL' => 'Varchar',
'has_one' => array(
'RelatedMember' => 'Member',

function updateCMSFields(FieldSet $fields){
$fields->push(new TextField('AvatarURL','Enter AvatarURL'));

class Deelnemers_Controller extends Page_Controller{
