    The get_syndication_source_link() template tag can be used in templates to retrieve the URL of the human-readable homepage for the source that a syndicated post was syndicated from. The value can then be stored for later display or processing through PHP functions in your WordPress templates.


    <?php if (is_syndicated()) : ?>
      <?php $url = get_syndication_source_link(); ?>
      <p class="byline">This is a syndicated post which originally appeared at
      <a href="<?php print htmlspecialchars($url) ?>">
      <?php the_syndication_source(); ?></a> on
      <a href="<?php the_syndication_permalink(); ?>">
      <?php the_date('j F Y H:i:s'); ?></a>
    <?php endif; ?>
