Description of problem:
When selecting "Self-Run WordPress" as a blog-type in preferences it always adds
"wordpress/xmlrpc.php" at the end of the blog base URL. So the program cannot
find the actual xmlrpc.php file and gives an error message when trying to post
or lookup blogs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Just select 

Steps to Reproduce:
Just select "Self-Run WordPress" as blog-type and after filling the
xml-rpc_url/user/pass try to post or lookup blogs.

Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info: You can still post to WordPress blogs by selecting a compatible
blog-type, like "Self-Run Movable Type".

That is the expected behavior.  It uses the default setting for a typical
Wordpress installation.  If you set-up a non-standard wordpress installation,
you should use a Self-Run Type.  Refer to

Well, sorry but I cannot agree with this. :)
When I first read the option "Base blog URL", I filled in the URL to the root
directory of wordpress and most of the people would act the same way. Appending
the "wordpress/xmlrpc.php" is too much convenience and it could confuse some
people. Appending only the "xmlrpc.php" part would be more effective I think.
