It looks like Yoast SEO supports setting authorship defaults by Post type, but If I am correct this cannot be done on a per category basis.
Then scenario on my blog is that I have a "news" section where I repost interesting articles from other blogs. The posts are in a category called "news".
I don't think it would be very cool if I claimed authorship on a repost. I noticed I can manually turn this off per post, but I am worried about messing up eventually and claiming authorship on a few reposts.
I suppose I could create a custom post type to get the desired result, but then I am out in the weeds with tags, etc. (I would like to have posts and news share the same tags)
Is there a workaround that I am missing, or is this something that would make a great feature request? (I plan on upgrading to paid support once my blog takes off)
