This can be used to ask visitors to submit delivery dates, their birthdays, the best day to contact them, or anything else you can think of.

Improvements to Comments and theme compatibility

Jetpack 5.4 improved how the comment form is displayed in some themes.

When the Comments feature is enabled on your site, It should now display a form with a default height. There should also be no extra white space below it. Comments entered into the form will cause the height of the form to expand automatically.
