I installed the WordPress.com Stats plugin from my wordpress dashboard, but it isn't working and under the Settings, the message "please install the wordpress.com stats plugin and follow the instructions it presents: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/stats/" is displayed.
I followed the link, followed the instructions for the manual install, returned to the plugin settings in WordPress, but the error message is still there. I've refreshed the page, de-activated and re-activated the plugin, but nothing seems to get it working. It never even gets to the step where it asks for my API key.
I've searched but haven't seen anyone else discussing this installation problem. Any ideas how I can get WordPress.com stats to work?
