I am trying to add a second content area using the following:

class Publication extends Page {

private static $db = array (
'SideInfo' => 'HTMLText',

public function getCMSFields() {
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();

$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.RightContent", new HTMLEditorField('SideInfo'));

return fields;

class Publication_Controller extends Page_Controller {

But when I try to add a new page of that type, it creates the page but I get the message 'Internal server error'. So I am assuming there is something wrong with that code above ^

Many thanks in advance
