[Yoast SEO Plugin]Rel Canonical not working (2 posts)

    I am using Yoast SEO Plugin and I would like to use the Rel=Canonical function which exists in the SEO Box / Advanced. As I create a new post I add a link in the rel canonical box and save. When I later check the post it does not show up in the source code. What shows up in the rel="canonical" is the actual link to the post I added. The link I added in the editor is visible, but only at the following place:
    <meta property="og:url">

    Anyone got a clue why this is happening?

    I'm experiencing the same problem, though og:url is wrong, also.

    One other note: link rel="canonical" occurs twice in the head. Once right at the top then again in the Yoast SEO section. Both show the current page, not the one specified in Advanced -> Canonical URL.
