For a future build

I've got 2 other projects to finish first but I'm starting to think about the joinery for a canopy bed I will be making. I've got most of it figured out except the headboard and footboard. What kind of joinery do I use to attach the panel for the headboard/footboard to the posts? Dado? Sliding dovetail? Both would show either above or below the panel on the post no? Simple biscuits and glue? Thanks everyone in advance...

Been a while since I built this one but believe I used mortise and tenons.

I used through tenons on this head board:

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Really cannot tell much from your sketch. I probably would use a stopped dado. Good joint and simple to make.

If it is a panel with a frame it would be edge grain to edge grain, a strong glue joint to begin with. Dowels, biscuits, or whatever you use would be more to maintain the position until the glue sets than adding strength.
The weakest link would be in the joinery of the frame.

The reason I posted the pic I did was because,like your drawing there are no top or bottom rails.Woodinthings has a thicker t&b rail so it's easier to do a thru mortise and tenon joint which you can't use on your project.
The pic I posted is all 3/4 material so the are not even posts on the ends but 2 pieces of 3/4 hard maple joined together at 90 degrees.That's why I did M&T to get the most structural integrity I could with the thickness of wood I was dealing with.I cut a tenon on the horizontal members and a mortise or stopped dado if you will to accept the tenon.
It was very structurally sound.

See how the panel extends out from the frame a bit?
This fits into a rabbet in the frame which conceals the joint.
