Primary Term Name and Link in Bricks when using Rank Math

One of the features of the Rank Math SEO plugin is the ability to mark a term like category or product category as primary.

See How to Choose a Primary Category.

This Pro tutorial shows how to create a custom PHP function that takes either 'name' or 'link' as its first argument and the taxonomy name as the second argument and returns the primary term's name or link for the specified taxonomy.

The function can then be used in Bricks editor on single templates or in query loops on archives with its echo dynamic tag to print the primary category/product category/custom taxonomy term's name or link or linked name.
