can’t visit wordpress.com and can’t get api key

  • i’m in China and wordpress dot com has been banned in my country since a couple of months ago for some bullshit unknown reasons and i no longer have access to my acount at wordpress.com.i cannot use proxies either because of my network connection. now i’ve installed a wordpress on my own machine for test purposes.but i don’t remember my wordpress.com api key and cannot use the akismet plugin.does anyone know how to get it? who shall I report this problem to? i tried to explore wordpress.org and find contact information with wordpress.com but failed.thanks for help.

  • Unfortunately the only way to get an akismet API key is to log in to your wordpress.com account.
    Maybe you know somebody that you trust in another country – so you could ask that person to get the key for you.

    thanks for reply.maybe i’ll find friends in australia instead…

    i got it! i was inspired by the topic “missing API key” where moshu suggested that one could find his api key in his registeration email.then i checked my email and i found it! thank you moshu, you are super.

    but more unfortunately, my akismet plugin still said that my api key seem invalid after i update it from my registeraion email.i can visit akismet.com normally. is being disconnected with wordpress.com still the reason for this?
