Hi and welcome back to WordPress Trac!

As noted on ticket:48023#comment:1, there has been discussion about adding this functionality to core (which was considered plugin territory more than ten years ago). Let's keep that conversation on #7650.

Even if we reopen the ticket, it likely will not be completed soon. So you probably want to look into plugin options for your own site(s).
