Description (last modified by ocean90)

When I'm writing an article I always want to select a primary category for my post. When I write an article by enabling the classic editor I get the option to make any category as primary.

Now when I do the same by enabling Gutenberg editor, I can't get the option to select a category as primary.
Please fix this issue in the next update.

Hello @linuxrajdeep, welcome to WordPress Trac!

Thanks for your report. By default WordPress core has no functionality to set a primary category. You likely have a plugin installed which gives you that feature. Please check your plugins and try contacting the plugin author to request compatibility with the block editor.

Just following on from this reply, the plugin that is referred to here is likely Yoast SEO.

I've just tested Yoast SEO's Primary Category feature, and it works as expected in the block editor.

The Make Term Primary string on the screenshot is from the Rank Math plugin.
