[resolved] WordPress Stats nightmare (8 posts)

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm using wordpress for my blog at the following adress:


    My blog used to be hosted on wordpress.com (gufugumu.wordpress.com) but I deleted it since I moved to a self hosted solution.

    Like many from the WordPress community, I would like to use the statistic tool WordPress Stats. When I activate the plugin, it tells me I need an API key. Fair enough, I go create a wordpress account for that key.

    Once this is done, I enter the key on my self host blog and here's the message:

    "The API key "xxx" belongs to the WordPress.com account of "xxx". If this is not your account, please re-enter your API key."

    So I click on the "Add to WordPress.com account" button and the following message pops up:

    "Error from last API Key attempt:

    The owner of that API Key (gufugumu) is not on the access list for this blog (###). To be added to the access list, you must contact support."

    I've been trying to find an answer on the internet but seems that there's a LOT of confusion about this.

    Also, please note that I'm using Akimset, I do have a key and Akimset is working like a charm... Of course, I tried that key on Stats but it gives me this message:

    "Error from last API Key attempt:

    That API Key can not be used for Stats. Please get your API Key from your WordPress.com profile page.".

    So as you can see, I'm running in circle here. ANY help would be greatly appreciated! thanks ^_^

    I'm guessing you're using the version 1.5.4 of 'WordPress.com stats', which is broken since it's release. It causes the API problem and it also doesn't show stats for many people in the dashboard (only in blog stats)

    (it's a shame they keep it this way and they ignore all the screaming people about it).

    Just download 1.5.3 and try again.

    You can get it here: http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/stats.1.5.3.zip
    Please report back if it worked (to avoid other people asking the same question)

    Amplifier, i love you, thanks for you answer. I downloaded 1.5.4. Don't know if it worked but at least I now don't have the error message.

    But now, my statistics always show "0" which I know for a fact that it is wrong as I have at least 500 visitors a day. Any idea why it doesn't compute the stats?

    you need 1.5.3 to have it working fully, not 1.5.4 ;)
