I have similar issue.

I have News Holder and News Post. But I Have extended Blog Holder and Blog Entry respectively.
Can I change this to DataObject while inheriting from Blog Entry?

I am a designer who can manage to code with little help :)

Current Code for NewsPost is

class NewsPost extends BlogEntry {
	static $db = array (
     'GalleryImageWidth' => 'Int',
     'Featured' => 'Boolean',
     'UserPost' => 'Boolean',
	static $default_parent = 'NewsHolder';
	static $can_be_root = false;
	static $has_one = array(
		'Photo' => 'Image'
		//'Gallery' => 'ImageGalleryPage' 
		//'GalleryImages' => 'GalleryImage' 
	static $has_many = array (
          'GalleryImages' => 'GalleryImage'

  public function init() {

    // Note: you should use SS template require tags inside your templates 
    // instead of putting Requirements calls here.  However these are 
    // included so that our older themes still work   


	function getCMSFields() {
	$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
    $fields->addFieldsToTab("Root.Content.Main", new CheckboxField('UserPost', "Post by a Member"));
	$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Main", new CheckboxField('Featured', "Featured Post"));
	$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Images", $leadImage= new ImageField('Photo', "Upload your lead image here"));
		$leadImage->setFolderName('Uploads/' .date("Y").'/' .date("m"));
	$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Configuration", $myField= new NumericField('GalleryImageWidth', 'Image Width'));
		/*$fields-> addFieldToTab ("Root.Content.Gallery", new DropdownField("GalleryID", "Gallery", 
			DataObject::get("ImageGalleryPage")->toDropdownMap(),  'Content'));*/
		$manager = new ImageDataObjectManager(
         $this, // Controller
        'GalleryImages', // Source name
        'GalleryImage', // Source class
        'MyGalleryImage', // File name on DataObject
            'GalleryImageTitle' => 'GalleryImageTitle'
         ), // Headings
         'getCMSFields_forPopup' // Detail fields (function name or FieldSet object)
         // Filter clause
         // Sort clause
         // Join clause
      $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.GalleryImage', $manager); 
     return $fields;

// Function for SideBar
    function GetSidebarContent($num=3) {

      //$randomNumber = 
      $sidebarContent = DataObject::get_one("SidebarContent");

        return false;

      $contents = array();

      $contents[] =  DBField::create('Varchar', $sidebarContent->Content1);
      $contents[] =  DBField::create('Varchar', $sidebarContent->Content2);
      $contents[] =  DBField::create('Varchar', $sidebarContent->Content3);
      $contents[] =  DBField::create('Varchar', $sidebarContent->Content4);
      $contents[] =  DBField::create('Varchar', $sidebarContent->Content5);

      //return new DataObjectSet(array_rand($contents, $num));      
      return new DataObjectSet(array_slice($contents, 0, $num));   
      //return new DataObjectSet($contents);   

class NewsPost_Controller extends BlogEntry_Controller{


 * Replaces Images to a predefined max width and adds a nyroModal class to the image
 * In template use : $Content.Parse(ArticleImageParser)
class ArticleImageParser extends TextParser{
	public function parse() { 
		// match image src
		$pattern = '/<img[^>]+src[\\s=\'"]';
		$pattern .= '+([^"\'>\\s]+)/is';
			$i = 0;
			foreach ($match[0] as $m){	
				//var_dump($m); //"<img class="right" src="assets/Articles/installingsilverstripe/wampserver.jpg"
				// get original image url
				$href = preg_replace('/_resampled\/resizedimage[0-9]*-/', '',  $match[1][$i]);
				// add a tag with original image url
				$this->content	= str_replace ($m,'<a class="popImage" rel="grp-all" href="'.$href.'">'.$match[0][$i],$this->content);
			// add missing </a> tag after each image
			$this->content = preg_replace('/<img[^>]+>/', '${0}</a>', $this->content);
		return $this->content;
