Hi guys. I'm sort of new here, and like many others I do get sometimes frustrated by WordPress and the high learning curve of using it, but I am enjoying the challenges it poses, and overall I am happy with how my blog is turning out.
One thing though - I would like to activate my Akismet, but of course I need an API key. I don't have one, because I made my wordpress account differently, which is by signing up with Fantastico (using CPanel) and installing it in my own domain.
So there is my dilemma. I know that there are many features that are not open to me - like a WordPress profile and avatar, and neither was I able to log in to even post questions in the forums with my existing username and password because apparently the WordPress (in Fantastico) seems to log in directly to my blog's admin panel, and not to WordPress.org.
How do I get my API? If there is anyone out there who used the same method I did to get my blog going, I could sure use some help. Ü
Many thanks in advance. Have a great day!
