Hi folks
I've extended my to include a MenuImage field, and I'd like the tab to show a bit of descriptive text below the ImageField (e.g. "Please use a 100x100 image for best results").

I've googled and searched through the SilverStripe book but to no avail. Is there a way to add a label like that in SS?

Thanks very much,

You can use the setRightTitle() function on a form field to set a secondary label. Or if that doesn't give you the control you need, insert a new LiteralField form object and include the HTML you need.
