    Hi, I've tried that and the new field is showing at the comment form. But, if I fill the comment form and press "send", the e-mail I recive doesent't include the information in the new field. For example, I'm trying to ad a field at the comment form in orden to know de birthdate of the person who is commenting. So, if I use this plugin, the field to write the birthdate (year of date) apears in my web, but I don't recieve that information in the e-mail.
