    Thanks!

    Another question - I want to create my own categorys and add links - but how do I do this. I add a category - but there's no where put your link - it just says description.

    Regards Jason :)

    I've already read that link above - it doesn't say "My Account" or "Profile" any where just "My Profile" and that hasn't got the API key.

    Regards Jason :)

    I know how do the categories - just need the API key.

  6. You need an account at wordpress.com - you don't have to have a blog there, just an account. Once you have that, your API key will be in your profile there - not in your own blog.

    If you are self hosted you need to set up a non-blog account with wordpress.com
    To do this:
    Go to http://wordpress.com (different from WordPress.org)
    Click the large SIGN UP NOW! button.
    Fill in your information and at the bottom click Just a username, please, NOT Gimme a blog.
    They will send you an email with your API key, otherwise go to My Account and it will be there.
    When typing in the API URL simply type in your self hosted web address and follow that by /xmlrpc.php. Here’s an example: http://www.yourURLfromyourselfhostedsite.com/xmlrpc.php
