And if anyone is curious how to add the Canonical URL here, just add canonical_url: <link_to_original_post> to the header (same place where you have the title) of your Markdown. :-)

You will know that it worked if you see this under the title of your post:

Awesome addition, thanks for that added clarity, Ruan!

And another note on that... if you're using the Rich + Markdown editor version (which you can select from here), then the UX for inputting a Canonical URL is just slightly different. Just click the little gear icon at the bottom of the page beside Publish/Save Draft and you'll find the place to input your canonical.
