Ip.Board 3.0 Adds Gravatar Support

November 27, 2008 | Posted by Demitrious Kelly

Invision Power recently announced that they’re adding native Gravatar support with the 3.0 release of their forum software, IP.Board.  You can read the announcement here.  That’s awesome news, and I think it’ll be a real win for all the forum posters out there.  For those of you IP.Board admins out there who don’t want to wait for 3.0 Vadim recently submitted an add-on for the current version available here.

    I’m surprised more forum softwares aren’t implementing gravatars already. I implemented them in an SMF forum a while back (click my name above to see) and they’ve been great. Gravatars are far more suitable for forums where users are unlikely to post on a regular basis. My own forum is a basic support forum, users often only leave one or two posts and it isn’t really worth their effort to add an avatar.
