I have a self hosted blog - pizzazzerie.com and have been using the wordpress.com stats plugin for months with zero problem. To set up the plugin (months ago), I created the only wordpress.com account I have to get an API key. All was well. Then randomly today the stats plugin stopped working, telling me
"The owner of that API Key (pizzazzerie) is not on the access list for this blog (12849821). Stats was installed using a different API key. The owner of the original key can add users to the access list, or you can contact WordPress.com support."
Well - it's the only wordpress.com account I've ever had or ever used, so this makes no sense. It's working fine for Akismet as well.
When I log into my one and only wordpress.com account and click SITE STATS - I see this:
"You are not a member of this site.
If you have just installed the WordPress.com Stats plugin, this error probably appeared because the API key entered in the plugin belongs to a different WordPress.com user account.
The owner of the API key must visit this site's stats page to grant access.
You are logged into WordPress.com as pizzazzerie. To switch accounts, log out."
Confused... no idea what to do... I only have 1 API key and it won't work.
