Ask for Walk Score ID (Not an API key)
Hi there, I am a developer at Walk Score.
In General Options the label 'Walk Score API key' should be labeled 'Walk Score ID'.
This small verbiage error is causing us a lot of tech support pain, especially when we tell people they need a Walk Score ID and they insist vehemently that they must have an API key as indicated by Local Market Explorer.
This small change would really save us and your users a lot of time. Even better, if you could make the label link to our sign up page - the correct one is:
For the record, we do have an API but that is not used by Local Market Explorer - a much simpler Walk Score ID is required to embed the Neighborhood Maps in any site.
Thank you for including Walk Score in your plugin! If you have any questions please feel free to email me directly at mahalie at walkscore dot com. Cheers!
