    Hi there. When I updated the Akismet plugin just recently, it says my API key is no longer valid and I need to get a new one. When I try to log in to get a new one, it wants to log into my wordpress.com account and view my wordpress.com blog. I have a wordpress.com account and a worldpress.com blog, but I don’t use it. I want the API key for my wordpress.org (self hosted) blog. How do I go about getting an API key for that?

    Thank you.

    Hi there:

    Sorry for the delay! We were out on a holiday break. πŸ™‚

    Akismet uses WordPress.com user accounts for account management, so you would need to log in using that account in order to get an API key for your self-hosted site.

    If you’re still having trouble, please reach out to us here and we’ll pull up your account and see what the issue might be:

    Let me know if you have any questions!
