Any way to add a "via" link back to original source? (5 posts)

    Feedwordpress currently offers the option of setting the permalink on the the posts to "The copy on the original website" or "The local copy on this website". The behaviour I want to use is the local copy so that it clicks through to the post page locally. But when I use that setting, all links back to the original source are removed. I'd like to still include a "via whatever blog" link at the bottom of the post, so that a reader would still have the option of clicking through to the original source if they want.

    Is this possible with the current version? If not, consider this a feature request to add that function in a future version. Thanks!

    I found the solution. It's a simple matter of modifying the content templates to include a new link. Here's the code I added:

    <?php if (is_syndicated()) : ?>
    <p>For more, <a href="<?php the_syndication_permalink(); ?>">read the original post at <?php the_syndication_source(); ?></a>.</p>
    <?php endif; ?>

    Can we get this fixed in FWP?

    It does not need a "fix", the Add Attribution for FeedWordPress plugin has been available for years... at least I think that's the functionality you're asking for.

    Is it possible to add the attribution link directly to the content of the post, so that when the blog is migrated, the attribution text will still be.
