    What kind of custom fields do you mean and what do you want to do with the custom field?

    Hello!

    I mean meta data field to a comment. Fields that are used with functions:
    get_comment_meta()
    update_comment_meta(),
    add_comment_meta().

    When you are in Edit Comment form you see only Name, email, URL, Comment text.

    For example, when we edit a post we can update meta data to a post. But for comments we can't.

    Thanks!

    ZehrGut,

    I agree this could be sehr useful. Never used comment meta, so I wasn't aware of this them not being editable (makes no sense, if everything else in a comment can be edited).

    I don't have time to give it a deeper look before weekend, but quickly checking out wp-admin/edit-form-comment.php, looks like comment meta fields are not even shown, right?

    There's two do_action calls in the file, so maybe a custom function can be hooked, but I really need to try it first:

    do_action('add_meta_boxes', 'comment', $comment);
    do_action('add_meta_boxes_comment', $comment);

    (Line 130 and line 131 in edit-form-comments.php)

    Hello!
    Yes, it can be done.
    Some plugins add metaboxes to comment editing form. It's not a problem. But it would be nice to have such functionality out-of-the-box. Like for posts.

    Ah, I see. Have you tried submitting a patch for this? Or do you know if anyone else has?

    Unfortunately no. I don't do coding by myself. Only small tweaking.
