I'm getting this line in my php log on every page load

PHP Strict Standards:  Declaration of CustomSiteConfig::extraStatics() should be compatible with that of DataExtension::extraStatics() in /ss3/mysite/code/CustomSiteConfig.php on line 17

CustomSiteConfig.php files content


class CustomSiteConfig extends DataExtension {

	public function extraStatics(){
      	return array(
        	'db' => array(
        		'FacebookLink' => 'Varchar(255)'

	public function updateCMSFields(FieldList $fields) {
		$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Main', new TextField('FacebookLink', 'Facebook Link'));

Using SS3 RC1 wiht MAMP and php version 5.3.6

Any ideas what could be wrong with my code?

The upgrading documentation explains that extraStatics() is deprecated and you should just use

public static $db = array(
	'FacebookLink' => 'Varchar(255)',

The error itself is because 3.0 now includes E_STRICT errors, so method declarations must match the declaration of the parent method it is overriding.
