Add-on rel=canonical (especially for resource manager)

There are addons that can add meta descriptions, but I want something that will allow me to add rel=canonical to specific resources.

Can anyone help please?

I'm not sure we are talking about the same thing.

What f I want to change the rel=canonical e.g. make it link to an external URL?

I'm not sure you understand what rel=canonical means.

If you want to link a resource to an external URL, that is done when adding the resource.

No I don't want to link a resource to an external URL, I want to specify a (nearly) duplicate page on a different domain as the canonical page.

To explain further.

What I want is a cross domain rel=canonical. I don't think xenforo does that by default.

If I have an article in resources, and a duplicate article on another site, I may want to have a cross domain rel=canonical as advised by Google:

The only way I can think of doing that (without an add-on) is by using the resource ID in a conditional statement and editing the template.

Would that allow me to do it on a per resource basis?

But actually I'm after an addon (hence posting in this section)
