Canonical Link Missing on Front Page

Reported by: miqrogroove Owned by:
Milestone: Awaiting Review Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.4.2
Component: Canonical Keywords:
Focuses: Cc:

Description

Canonical links are provided for posts, so if someone links to /2012/12/my-post/?whatever then Google will know it is a duplicate of /2012/12/my-post/

But if someone links to /?whatever there is no canonical address.

This is also a problem with the default search path, /?s= where WordPress uses the wrong template and displays the front page instead of the search results page.
