Tutorial extra field in contact form in YOOtheme Pro Joomla 3.7

This is a tutorial for the form fields as you can see here where i added a birthday calendar field to the default contact form of Joomla with components everywhere in a YOOtheme Pro text element.
In the Joomla backend in Contacts you have on the left 2 new items, Fields and Field groups.
Click on Fields and then on New. Above where it says Contact select Mail!
Select your type of field and add a name and label.
Before you can enter a value in the frontend you have to change the Permission for Edit Custom Field Value!
Check the result.
You see now that there is a legend called Fields. To get rid of it go to language overwrites and create a new overwrite.
Search for "JGLOBAL_FIELDS" for Constant and delete on the left the word Fields and save.

More info about fields here.
Used template: YOOtheme Pro

I followed the steps of your tutorial but did not show me anything on the form.
They are simple steps, but I do not know where I am failing.

I'm using Chester template and joomla 3.7.2
