How do I repost a blog post from my personal blog?

I did it once before where I posted on my original blog and posted a copy of it here. I think an admin/mod/whatever did the attribution back to my original post for me. How can I do it myself? Is it a front-matter thing?

Is this what you're looking for? If you publish from RSS it will automatically set the canonical URL meta tag and put the link back on the page.

Not exactly! I was looking for how to set the canonical URL meta tag in the first place. Just found the editor guide so problem solved!

For anyone else, it's a canonical_url front-matter property.

Thanks!

Sorry, it's true.
