I'm trying to set up Akismet on my WordPress blog (server is DreamHost). It asks for my API KEY.
But I can’t find my API KEY, anywhere!
I checked My Account, as instructed, but it’s not listed there.
I checked My Profile, but it’s not listed there either.
I checked my sign-up email from WordPress, and it’s not there.
I tried to log into WordPress.com – to see if there’s any info there -- but the log-in screen wouldn’t recognize my username or password. I know I’m still registered, because I can access my blogsite, no problem.
But when I tried to get a new password, the automatic Retrieve Password screen tells me it’s not recognizing my username.
As WC Fields said: "I feel like somebody stepped on my brain with muddy feet..." or something to that effect.
My head hurts, trying to figure this out:
A): how do I get my API KEY?
B): how do I get my username and password verified?
C): how can I get a good Martini with two olives for under seven bucks?
Help with all of the above would be appreciated...
