I'm new here, and I've just published my first post. It's a repost from somewhere else. I've added the canonical_url in frontmatter, but my post doesn't say "originally published at" in the author line.

I'm sure I'm missing something, how do I add that line to my author tag for the post?

Here is an example of how it looks for other people. https://dev.to/huijing/organising-talkcss-consistently-anyhowly-1kcd

Is the article you posted coming from a RSS feed?

it's not. wrote a new post and used the canonical_url field in frontmatter.

That's why. "Originally published" appears only with crossposts from the RSS feed

@rhymes Could you please elaborate how do you create a crosspost from an RSS feed?
Say I have an article on Medium. Where do I get the RSS feed and what do I do next?

Medium RSS are generated by adding /feed at the end of your medium profile URL. For example, mine is https://lakatos.medium.com/feed.

After you have your RSS url from Medium, put that in your DEV settings, in the "Extensions" page, under the "Publishing to DEV Community from RSS" section. dev.to/settings/extensions

After you save the feed settings, it will fetch the feed, and your articles will show up as drafts in the DEV Dashboard.

I’ve learned most of my tricks from a writing service I’ve used as a student. I was choosing a satire essay topic to publish on my blog and wasn’t sure about this, so I asked edubirdie.com/blog/satire-essay-to... to help out. They really did, so I recommend them dearly.
