Akismet Question

Postby tishialee on Tue Aug 21, 2007 1:02 am

I am trying to activate akismet on my wordpress blog but it is asking for my API key. I follow their instructions for finding my API key but there isn't one. So then it says that if I have a wordpress blog somewhere other than at wordpress.com I might have to sign up to get one? What? I'm confused - so now I have to actually register a blog at wordpress.com to get an API key to use akismet?

Nope, you register to get the api. Fill out your info. At the bottom of this page, you have two choices:
  • Gimme a blog! (Like username.wordpress.com)
  • Just a username, please.

Check the last one and hit "next" to continue.

Yeah thank you Kit! It worked and it was EASY and I understood it - LOL!

Now I won't have to deal with all the stupid spam I clear out every day! Thank you thank you.
