I'm new to Silverstripe and have sepnt the past few days running through the tutorials in an attempt to get to grips with customisation of the CMS,

I'm building a test page base don the tutorial with the following structure:

Staff Holder > StaffPage

I have managed to add the ability to upload an image for each staff member, what I'd now like to do is store some data against the image, for example a title for the image, a caption and a live switch.

It seems that the way to go is to create a class such as StaffImage which extends a DataObject type?

Is my logical and approach correct so far?
