I'm trying to create a Page where Members can edit their own profile, but the form doesn't seem to be writing back to the member table.

function UserProfileForm() 
		//Get Current Member Info
		$member = $this->CurrentMember(); 
		//Create Form
		$fields = new FieldSet(
							 new FieldGroup (
											 new HeaderField('Personal Information', 3),
											 new TextField('FirstName', 'First Name', $member->FirstName),
											 new TextField('Surname','Last Name', $member->Surname ),
											 new EmailField('Email','Email', $member->Email)
							 new FieldGroup (
											 new HeaderField('Company Information', 3),
											 new TextField('CompanyName','Company Name', $member->CompanyName),
											 new TextField('CompanyURL','Company Website', $member->CompanyURL),
											 new TextField('HomePhone','Company Phone', $member->HomePhone),
											 new TextField('Address','Address', $member->Address),
											 new TextField('AddressLine2','Address Line 2', $member->AddressLine2),
											 new TextField('City','City', $member->City),
											 new TextField('State','State or Province', $member->State),
											 new TextField('Country','Country', $member->Country)
		$fields->push(new HiddenField("ID"));
		$actions = new FieldSet(
								new FormAction('ChangePersonalDetails', 'Update Profile')
		// Create Validators 
		$validator = new RequiredFields('FirstName', 'LastName', 'Email');
		return new Form($this, 'ContactForm', $fields, $actions, $validator);
	function ChangePersonalDetails($data,$form) 
		$member = $this->CurrentMember();
		$member->FirstName = $data['FirstName'];
		$member->Surname = $data['LastName'];
		$member->Email = $data['Email'];
		$member->CompanyName = $data['ComapnyName'];
		$member->CompanyURL = $data['CompanyURL'];
		$member->HomePhone = $data['HomePhone'];
		$member->Address = $data['Address'];
		$member->AddressLine2 = $data['AddressLine2'];
		$member->City = $data['City'];
		$member->State = $data['State'];
		$member->Country = $data['Country'];
		$member->companyTypeList = $data['companyTypeList'];
		Director::redirect(Director::baseURL(). $this->URLSegment);

Any Suggestions? The

At a glance...

return new Form($this, 'ContactForm', $fields, $actions, $validator);
return new Form($this, 'UserProfileForm', $fields, $actions, $validator);


Is ChangePersonalDetails getting called?

I Know that is an old topic but for newbies in SS (like me =)) this module is very useful
