WordPress.org API key

November 6, 2009 6 comments

You just installed wordpress.org and now you’re about to install some plugins which require the API key to work.. and you look everywhere in your wordpress.org for that API key but couldn’t find it. It’s because it’s not there. In other words, wordpress.org doesn’t have any API key. Yes, you read that right. You would never find any API key in wordpress.org.

So how do you install those plugins that need the API key, right? The answer is you have to create an account with wordpress.com and you’ll get the API key there. Yes, maybe you think you don’t need any account with wordpress.com since you already have your own wordpress.org running, but the fact is, the plugins that require the API key actually need wordpress.com to run. And most probably the plug-in was wrote by the good guys at wordpress.com.

So, head on to http://www.wordpress.com, register yourself a new account which probably you’ll never bother again in the future and get yourself an API key by logging in into your newly created account.
