Add scraped article URL to article as credit back to original article

Add an option to include the scraped article URL into the article itself. Optimally it would be a link where the anchor is the article title. This would serve as a credit back to the original article. Eg: The post <a href="http://www.wikihow.com/Teach-Your-Dog-to-Sit">; Teach your dog to sit </a> was originally posted on <a href="http://www.wikihow.com">; WikiHow </a>

This would be useful to build articles for syndication campaigns where the original article can be used with a link back to the original article.

I assume you want this added to the article downloader?

If you are using RSS feed downloader, it already has option to insert link back to original article.

Yes, it would be for article downloader. The problem with rss feeds is that some only includes a very short excerpt of the content with the link back to the original article.

I've just had another look on rss feed downloader in the blog manager and that template tab is really a neat solution!
