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?

    That already happens by default.

    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)
