Error from last API Key attempt:
Your blog was unable to connect to WordPress.com. Please ask your host for help. (transport error - could not open socket: )
Is there a way to use officially plugins without an API Key?
Because I get this error message every time I insert my key.
My host says they have disabled socket connection and will never enable it.
edit: and which socket has to be enabled for the wp_stats and the askimet addon?
