[resolved] API Key WordPress.com Stats (6 posts)

    Hi, I had plug in the WordPress.com Stats. After I key in my API key that from my wordpress.com blog, it shows:

    "WordPress.com Stats
    The API key "xxx" belongs to the WordPress.com account of "xxx". If this is not your account, please re-enter your API key.

    According to the WordPress.com database, this API key is already associated with at least one self-hosted blog. You can add this as a new blog on your WordPress.com account or replace an existing blog and inherit its stats history."

    I only have one self-host account, I think my API key is hack by someone else or do I missing something?

    How do I solve this?

    Thank you.

    Regards,
    Chasez

    Is it listing your wordpress.com account? I know that the first time I entered my API key is said it was associated with my wordpress.com blog that you get by default with any account sign up

    Thanks for your replied.

    Yes, that's my account. I used the API key at the first time for Akismet plugin and it works.

    But this time, second time failed.

    HMM that's weird. I am using the same key for a number of sites that I have built/manage and some that are clients entirely.

    It's solved. I just add or join them together. "You can add this as a new blog on your WordPress.com account or replace an existing blog and inherit its stats history"
    This mean you can switch the blog that you like to work with.

    That's it.

    Hmmm, same problem here -- not resolved for me yet.

    It gives me 2 choices,

    1. Add new blog to my account
    Do this if this blog is new or has never been associated with your API key. This blog will be added to your WordPress.com account.

    2. Replace an existing blog
    Do this if you want this blog to take over the stats history of another blog associated with your WordPress.com account. This is appropriate if you have reinstalled WordPress, changed hosts, or restored your blog from an export file.

    Inside #2 it lists 2 of my blogs that already use this service. I do not want to "Replace" either. When I try the #1 "Add new blog to my account" button, it does not work and says API not recognized.

    chasez123 did you use the second option? Can you still see your old blog stats too?
