WP RSS Multi Importer
[resolved] Canonical to RSS source (8 posts)

    Hi,

    First of all, thank you for the great plugin. It is easy to set up and works like a charm. :) I have full rss posts on my site. In spite of showing the full post I would like to insert a canonical to the post source. I just have no idea how to realize that. Now the post on my website has a canonical, but that just had the URL of my website.

    Do you have any idea how I can insert a canonical tag the the source of the article that I show on my website?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi,
    do you mean adding a rel="canonical" to the link that goes to the posts source?

    Hi Allen,

    That is what I mean indeed. Now the rel="canonical" is to my own website instead of the post source.

    Hi Eddie
    Which template are you using? That would help me see what might be done? Also, I'm assuming you want to add this to the existing link rather that creating a new link..is that right?

    Hello Allen,

    I'm using the "the morning after" theme. A demo can be found here: http://themorningafterdemo.wordpress.com/.

    Now the post on my website has: <link rel='canonical' href='http://mywebsite.com/category/post/' /> included. I'd like that to be the source of the post so that I don't disadvantage the source.

    Ah..I meant template that my plugin is using..is it the DEFAULT template.

    Also, let me be clear, are you taking the RSS feed from this site (the one you just identified), or putting someone else's RSS feed on this site?

    I'm using the default template of the plugin. The URL I just mentioned is a demo of the theme I'm using (my bad, didn't understand you correctly). I'm using someone else's RSS feed on my website.
    The more I look into this, the more it seems to be the template I'm using. I guess it isn't fair then to ask you for a solution. Is it possible to add a canonical to feeds I'm importing through the RSS Multi Importer? I can then remove it from the template.

    By the way: thank you for your (very) fast replies!

    ok..let's try it this way...typically canonical is put into the head of the html , as in
    <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.mysite.com" />

    If that's the case, this would not be possible with my plugin at this point since this get's set up during the initiation phase of the plugin. Anyway, this could easily be done in the theme you are using since this goes in the head of the html.

    Am I missing something here?
