    for security reasons my internet host block xmlrpc.php. They inform if i want to publish remotely I can rename xmlrpc.php

    This is all good but the wordpress ipad app doesnt seem to have a way of specifying a different xmlrpc.php neither does blogsy.

    I want to be able to publish remotely (including photos) while I am away on my ipad. Other than changing my host any way around this ?

    Renaming the file is only one part of the issue. Most apps use a discover process, one step in that is requesting the RSD file. So if you have renamed your xmlrpc.php file to another-xmlrpc.php you need to open that in an editor and look for this line:

    <api name="WordPress" blogID="1" preferred="true" apiLink="<?php echo site_url('xmlrpc.php', 'rpc') ?>" />

    And change xmlrpc.php to another-xmlrpc.php.

    Then start looking for a different hosting provider.
