Breadcrumb Trail

A powerful script for adding breadcrumbs to your site that supports Schema.org HTML5-valid microdata.

Breadcrumb Trail is one of the most advanced and robust breadcrumb menu systems available for WordPress. It started out as a small script for basic blogs but has grown into a system that can handle nearly any site's setup to show the most accurate breadcrumbs for each page.

How it works

This plugin automatically detects your permalink setup and displays breadcrumbs based off that structure. Nearly all sites have some sort of hierarchy. Breadcrumb Trail recognizes that and builds a set of unique breadcrumbs for each page on your site.

This means that it can also detect custom post types and taxonomies right out of the box. Whatever you throw at it, it's got a solution.

Features

  • 5+ years of development and user testing.
  • Auto-detects the permalink structure of your site for the most accurate breadcrumbs.
  • Hooks for plugin/theme developers to overwrite output.
  • Coded with object-oriented programming (OOP) methods to allow developers to extend it for those highly-custom setups.
