    Hi-
    Can someone please tell me how to get my API authorization number? I know this is a basic question, but could not find it on the forum. Thanks.

    I need it for a plugin to fight Spam.

    Ya know.. if you look at the plugins page, there's a link in the description of the Akismet plugin.

    Anywho - go to wordpress.com. Sign up for an account. Yes, you are signing up for a free blog. No, you need not use it. Log in to your newly created wordpress.com blog. One of the pages will have your API Key. I think it is also emailed to you.

    HandySolo:
    Went to the plugin page. Activated the Akismet plug in. It is asking me for my API key. I have a WP account, but don't understand how I get my API key. Don't remember it being mailed to me. Anyone with a helpful answer would be great.

    Are you suggesting I sign up for a new account just to get a API key?
