linkchecker: Ignore WordPress XMLRPC


You are using linkchecker to check your WordPress site, but you get the following error multiple times:

$ linkchecker
URL        `'
Parent URL, line 8, col 1
Real URL
Check time 1.394 seconds
Result     Error: 405 Method Not Allowed


Installing a plugin that disables XMLRPC doesn’t help here –  because the XMLRPC pingback link will still be present on every page.

Instead, just tell linkchecker to ignore the XMLRPC link altogether:

linkchecker --ignore-url=/xmlrpc.php$
