Gravatar Support & New Moderation Tools

We’re like an assembly line. Our crew here is cranking out features with the efficiency of a well oiled machine. Props to Austin for cranking out his first feature release after only working at IntenseDebate for one week! I wasn’t kidding…he’s the LeBron James of developers.

Thanks to Austin’s hard work, we’re able to release two more widely requested features. First up is Gravatar support – you asked for it, so you got it. Now you can use your Gravatar with IntenseDebate. To use your Gravatar with IntenseDebate, check out the new option in your IntenseDebate profile (screenshot below). Don’t know what a Gravatar is?

We’ve also released new moderation features for blog admins. Admins are now able to ban a commenter from posting on their blog by IP address or email. This is useful for those pesky spammers and self-promoters that just won’t leave your blog alone. This gives admins the ability to ban anonymous commenters who haven’t created an IntenseDebate account as well. In addition, admins can also flag posts to be held for moderation based on IP and email. These new moderation tools are available in your “Settings” panel located in your IntenseDebate account.

We love your feedback, so keep the ideas coming! Job well done Austin!

  8. Now if a reader who isn't a IntenseDebate user but does have a Gravatar posts a comment, does their Gravatar still show up?

  11. I got really excited about this post, because i want to offer gravatar on my sites. The way i took it was that users to my website, a website which uses intensedebate for the commenting system, can leave a comment, and their gravatar picture will show up.

    But your blog post says you have rolled it out to the personal account of a person. Id really like for you to roll this out as a feature to websites so that when our users leave comments, their gravatar shows up with their comment.

  12. Hi Andrew. Sorry for the delay. We support both types of Gravatar functionality that you described: we default to your Gravatar for your IntenseDebate profile, and we also use your Gravatar when you're posting as a guest. Please let me know if this isn't the case.

  13. Ah i see. For some reason before I wrote my original comment to you a week or so ago, peoples Gravatar's werent coming up when they were leaving comments as a guest but over the last few days peoples pics have been showing up no problem, whether they are signed up or leaving comments as guests.

    Not sure if i was doing anything wrong, or if i had a setting switched off in my account or something, but either way, the result i was looking for now seems to be in place, so thanks for taking the time to get back to me Michael.

  14. Glad to hear that everything is working properly Andrew. Sorry again for the delay – your comment unfortunately slipped through. Please email me at support@intensedebate.com if you encounter any issues in the future. Thanks again.
