    1. Automatic Primary Category

    The posts’ category automatically makes the category with the first-most alphabet as the primary category. Please let me explain with an example.

    Post 1:
    Categories: Fun, Travel, Life
    Primary Category: Fun (F is first alphabetically)

    Post 2: Life, Health, Travel
    Primary Category: Health (H is first alphabetically)

    Even after trying to change to change the category, it will still reflect the first one in order. I am still learning WordPress and don’t know how to find the cause of this. But I think that the theme is causing such behavior.

    Please check on your end.

    2. Inline Image

    How do I make the inline (images inside blog post / body content) as big in size as the feature image? The images look smaller compared to the featured image. I hope you got what I’m trying to say here.

    Thanks for this amazing theme Ben. 😊

    Thanks for using Tracks!

    This is true that Tracks will display the first category alphabetically. Is there a different pattern you’d like to use, or would you like to display them all instead?

    To make images in the post content as large as the Featured Image, we have a special method available. Please follow the steps in this tutorial to make an image extra wide: https://www.competethemes.com/help/make-image-full-width-tracks/

    Hi Ben!

    I would like to display the primary category as the one I choose. How do I do that?

    Like in the example I shared, I would like the primary category for post 1 to be displayed as Travel and not Fun.

    Yes, this worked like magic. Thanks you so much! 😊

    Great thanks for clarifying.

    WordPress doesn’t have a built-in option for setting a primary category, but this is added by the Yoast SEO plugin. Do you already have this plugin installed, and are you seeing an option like this: http://pics.competethemes.com/320N1O3W0j1l

    Knowing if Yoast SEO is used will help me create some code to display that category on the site.

    But why wouldn’t WordPress have this inbuilt? Yes, I use the Yoast SEO plugin. I can see that option like you shared in the screenshot.

    Thanks for being so helpful Ben! 😊

    They should really add it! It’s a nice feature.

    Okay that got a little more complicated than I expected, but I have a child theme you can download here: download child theme. You can upload the zip file like a regular theme through the Appearance menu. Once activated, the category displayed above the post title will be the Primary Category selected with Yoast SEO.

    Hi Ben!

    Thanks for the child theme. It is working as desired now. You’re an amazing person. Will upgrade to pro version soon!

    Many thanks. 😊

    I’ve not done much on my blog yet and still to buy the pro version but I’d just like to show my appreciation to Ben. He is amazing and the help he offers is freaking fantastic!

    Ben, you really are a PRO!

    Just thought I’d have my say!

    All the best,
    Another Ben!
