Breadcrumbs not following click path? (2 posts)

    WordPress version: 3.5
    WordPress SEO version: 1.3.4.4

    I may be expecting the plugin to do something it's not designed for. But here's what I'm experiencing with the breadcrumbs:

    I have posts assigned to various categories. Then I have those category listings displayed via shortcode in Pages that are set in a hierarchical manner, i.e:

    Galleries
              Party
                        Dinner
                        Prom
                        etc.
              Reason
                        Birthday
                        Beginning
                        etc.

    Ok. So, when you click on a blog listing (generated by the shortcode), it seems fairly arbitrary what the breadcrumb ends up being.

    For instance, I could click on Galleries, then Reason, then Birthday, then the post called Luscious but instead of the breadcrumbs reflecting my click path, I get "Galleries » Wedding » Altar » Luscious". Of course, Luscious is assigned to Wedding>Altar as WELL as Reason>Birthday, but it's not indicating as such when I click through.

    Then, when I click on those breadcrumb links I am taken to actual category posts instead of the category pages I created.

    Am I expecting too much here? Or is it an issue with the posts being embeded via the shortcode?

    Here's the link to my development site.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry you are not getting any responses, Laura. I am interested in finding out how to do the same thing - namely display the actual path the user took rather than the hierarchical path in my posts and categories.
