amr breadcrumb navigation

Produces a breadcrumb trail through the page tree - a single page from each level of the page hierarchy (no nesting, no indenting).

The widget produces a breadcrumb trail through the page tree - a single page from each level of the page hierarchy (no nesting, no indenting). This widget is useful for website that may have fairly deep menu`s and a risk of the user getting "lost". Nothing is shown when at home page level (there is no trail then) and the list ends at current page level.A Default CSS styling is provided, however this can be switched off. It is also possible to add a separator in the HTML markup (instead of just using CSS to style the menu).


  • Uses listed items with minimal markup. The markup is designed to be compatible with the sandbox theme html markup and wordpress delivered markup. (Ie: it expects to be surrounded by a UL or OL, and thus starts with
  • )
  • Provides default css styling (no spans for separators), with the option to switch the default styling off to use your own. Depending on your existing theme, you may need to adjust your theme`s css. See below.
  • Uses wordpress sandboxplus flavoured css tags, so will pickup any general styling too, as well as allowing you to style the breadcrumb trail yourself.
  • Intended to be inserted into the sandboxplus header or branding div (horizontal)
  • Allows specification of a separator if you really wish one. This will be inserted into a span within the link text, so the whole area is clickable. If there is no separator (default) then no span html is issued.
  • Package consists of one plugin file and a default styling background image

Tested and Validated

The Css and the html produced have been validated by the w3c validator. The CSS has been tested on IE 8 and Firefox 3.55, and safari 4.0.3. It is fairly standard CSS. Please let me know if any problems are experienced.

CSS variations

Alternate CSS possibilities are demonstrated here.Breadcrumb Examples

If you have just widgetized your themes header, you may need to also switch off the list style for the high level ul. eg: div.sidebar ul { list-style-type: none; }. If your theme already allowed for widgets then hopefully its styling already provided a suitable style for all div`s of a class sidebar.
