    I would appreciate another field when you leave a comment.
    Right now you have: name, email, website, comment. I would like to add the field "profession".

    I can re-write the default PHPs with an extra field. It works fine, but it wouldn't display it later. And I don't see it in my admin area.

    How can I do that?

    I too need to add a field in my comment form where the users would be able to enter their hometown, so it's nothing fancy like a drop down menu or check box group ; just a simple text input field.

    The data from the hometown field would of course go into the database into a column called hometown or whatever the functionality would want to call it. We would be able to edit this hometown like the rest of the data such as the comment itself, in the control panel by clicking on the edit comments link.

    I am very surprised and can't believe that the WordPress developers have not catered for this basic need... Otherwise, I am very impressed by the new version of WordPress 2.5, it's awesome !

    We would like to just get rid of the website field. Is this possible?

    OK, I tried deleting the website form field, but it keeps reappearing. Is there a way to get rid of it?
