Primary Category Select in Gutenberg

  • Hey guys, another issue. In Gutenberg there is no option to pick primary category for the post (if post got 2 or more categories). I’ve tried to switch into classic editor, picked category, saved but still no luck. Any quick fix for that?

    Hello Tom,

    Although not being able to mark a category as a primary category while using the Gutenberg is a bug, it has no effect on the category marked in the frontend. That is completely dependent on how your theme detects and displays primary/secondary categories.

    So, even if you select a category as a primary category – it won’t change the name of the category in the frontend because that option is only to be used internally by Rank Math for use in Breadcrumbs created using Rank Math.

    We are taking note of the issue (not being able to select Primary Category in Gutenberg) and will soon fix it.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    I see, looks like Y guys sorted that already… so I thought it’s up to Rank Math
