Good day all

I am trying to add a second upload field to my blog module but am having trouble doing so...

The main issue i am currently having is that the FeaturedThumbnail does not show in my cms

what i have tried was:

private static $has_one = array(
'FeaturedImage' => 'Image',
'FeaturedThumbnail' => 'Image',

public function getCMSFields(){
Requirements::css(BLOGGER_DIR . '/css/cms.css');
Requirements::javascript(BLOGGER_DIR . '/js/cms.js');
$self =& $this;
$this->beforeUpdateCMSFields(function ($fields) use ($self) {
$uploadField = UploadField::create('FeaturedThumbnail', _t('BlogPost.FeaturedThumbnail', 'Featured Thumbnail'));
$uploadField = UploadField::create('FeaturedImage', _t('BlogPost.FeaturedImage', 'Featured Image'));

$fields->insertAfter($summaryHolder, 'FeaturedImage');
$fields->insertAfter($summaryHolder, 'FeaturedThumbnail');

return $fields;

// Create a new file in extensions
class BlogEntryDecorator extends DataExtension {
static $has_one = array(
'FeaturedThumbnail' => 'Image'
public function updateCMSFields(FieldList $fields) {
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Main", $FeaturedThumbnail = new UploadField('FeaturedThumbnail'), 'Content');
// Create add extension in _config
DataObject::add_extension('BlogEntry', 'BlogEntryDecorator');

If anyone can assist in this problem it would be greatly appreciated
