    Hello,

    I have wordpress 2.7 and activated akismet, but where do I put in the API key as it is not asking for it?

    Thanks.

    Actually, it's WordPress Stats, my API key doesn't seem to be working.

    I entered the API key but it keeps saying this:

    Error from last API Key attempt:

    Missing API Key

    I ran into that problem too not too long ago

    From what I remember, akismet has a section when you go to "edit" the plugin, but that is where you will receive the error. But if you go to try and view your akismet stats (same with wordpress stats if you have it) there should be a prompt to enter your API key with a text field. Add it there and you should be good.

    How do I actually view the stats?

    I have wordpress 2.7, and the only place where I see it is under the plugins tab - WordPress stats, where it asks you to enter your API key.

    So I've enetered it and when I go to that again, it says the key but there's no stats.

    Go to your dashboard, and on the left side menu, it should be under "my dashboard".

    Scratch that it is under "Plugins" menu. It should say Akismet configuration

    Wodpress stats - It is in plugin section, I enter API key, but stats don't show up, like they do on the free wordpress.com account.

    Stats take time to appear. After you've put the API key in, then it starts collecting stats from that point forward.

    hmm but the actual stats page doesn't show up, like they do in the free wordpress acount, something wrong with the api key or something.

    I know that originally encountering Akismet as a plugin, it tells you about the API Key (which I now have). Now I did click on "install", and it said something like "latest installed" but it did not show up in my list of installed plugins. So now I have no prompt or slot for inserting API Key and no way to delete plugin and start over.
