  1. I of course did a write up on your plugin 🙂
    Can you make the rel=”canonical” point to ://site instead of :// in your plugin as it is now?

  2. Mark, I don’t get you.It does point to the correct url. This site doesn’t use www and canonical url points to the non www version.If you use www for your site then canonical will point to the same.
