Canonical?

Hi, is it possible to set a TKB with a Cannonical tag? We have a blog on our main site, with a post I would like to have on the Community, but since I do not want my TKB to punish the blog for dublicated content I need to put in a Canonical tag.

Is this possible?

Your design might look slightly different but you should have SEO Options somewhere when editing a blog TKB articles.

Expand that section out and you can set Canonical URLs.

Hi @DanK 

I can see the SEO options in "Knowledge Base" but not in the "Blog" area? 

Is it something I have to activate in backend? 

I could be wrong but i think its limited to certain interaction styles and blogs a'int one of them :(  here is what i found from an old page:

 

  • Canonical URLs: Canonical URLs are set up when multiple pages have similar content. Search engines crawl the canonical URL pages more often than other similar pages. This year, we added canonical URLs for the following pages on the Lithium platform:

 

  • TKB board (tkb-p) & Idea board (idb-p) pages, when they are sorted
  • Login page, Registration page & Forgot password page, when they contain passed parameters

Apologies, I said blog in my post but my post was about setting canonical in TKB, which is what you were asking about as I understood it.

It is possible for blogs too, it appears on the side in my editor (again this may differ based on how much your experience is customised).

I apologies. I meant blog and not TKB. I have the same as you in the editor view, but not the Canonical URL?

I can think of a few reasons I would have it and you wouldn't (feature version, setting at Khoros end, customisation, etc) but in all of those cases I would recommend the same course of action. Submit a ticket to support and ask them why you can't see it.
