[Suggestion] Using ' link rel=”canonical” ' in phpMyFAQ – or in HTTP headers

Dear Thorsten Rinne / Development Team

It is often referred that using ' rel=”canonical” ' in a <link> element [1] is a good practice even, at present time, not being part of (X)HTML5 standard [2][3] - specially for SEO (search engine optimization, e.g., “search engines” [4]).


Code: Select all

<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.example.com/faq/?solution_id=1234" />
<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.example.com/faq/long-question-faq-text-rewrited" />
It's possible to edit the phpMyFAQ's original templates to include this information in FAQs pages, but we didn't found a way to insert the content in the home page.

Could you please refer the files to edit in order to use “canonical” content in the home page?

Thanks in advance.
