I'm have an issue selecting which category should be defined as the primary category for a post when more than one categories are selected for a post.
For example, I have have the categories "UGA" and "NCAAF" and I choose both categories for a post, I would like "UGA" to be the primary category, or the first listed, followed by NCAAF. I cannot set UGA as a parent with NCAAF as a childe due the the fact that NCAAF can be associated with other categories as well. For example I may choose "GT" and "NCAAF" as categories together. In this example, again, I would want "GT" to come first.
Why do I want this you may ask? My theme has many features that depend on the category. I do not want to sacrifice the ability for a post to appear under multiple categories however, but it is important to be able to define a primary category. Beside post titles, for example, the category is shown as a tag. It always picks the "first" category. This appears to be alphabetical. Again, I would like to be able to choose the primary category as described in the above UGA/NCAAF scenario.
I've tried various plug-ins to no avail. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks WP community!
