How to change API-key for WordPress.com Stats? (5 posts)

    For my clients I always used my API-key to set up Akismet. Now I have some blogs with the plugin WordPress.com Stats. I got a new API-key for my client with their own login data but I can't seem to associate the blog to this new API.

    The Akismet confirms the new API key (the clients key) but dashboard/blog stats says: You are not a member of this blog. I seem to be locked out. When I login wp-admin with my clients login data the result is the same.

    I would like the client to login wordpress Stats using their own (API-key and) login data.
    Is there a way to get to the data WordPress Stats keeps for my blogs?

    Bumping this post. I need to be able to do this too. I installed the plugin with one API key and realized that I want to use a different API key. I am able to change it for Akismet very easily. But there is not interface to managing the API key for Stats.

    Speaking of the API key, where do I find it; I haven't been able to finish setting up Akismet because I am new to WP, unfamiliar with certain things, so I don't know where to find this API key.

    Can someone help me here, throw me a bone? :)

    Given that, for some mysterious reason, this thread currently shows up as the top search result for changing API keys in WP stats, it might be useful to include a link to the FAQ's take on this.
