Hansel & Gretel: Fine-Tuned Breadcrumb Generator

Simple microdata-enabled breadcrumbs generator

Installing Hansel & Gretel is easy-peasy, but of course there's a bit of administrative work on the front end you'll need to take care of.

Requirements & Compatibility

Minimum (theoretical) WordPress Version Required: 3.1.0
Actually Tested Versions 3.3.2, 3.4.X, 3.5

If you find it non-operational on your particular flavor of WP, please let us know.


  1. Make sure WordPress 3.1.0 or better is running on your site. It will not work with older versions.

  2. Get the plugin onto your site, in one of many ways:

    • Use the Plugin Manager via the WordPress admin to install the plugin (via Add New). Search for "Hansel & Gretel" and click install on this plugin.
    • Download the stable zip archive from the WordPress Plugin Repository and extract the contents.
    • Download the bleeding-edge zip archive from GitHub and extract the contents.
    • Clone the GitHub Repository to your local machine (or even your remote server on some hosting providers!) and always have an up-to-date version available to you.
  3. If you didn't use the Plugin Manager to install H&G, upload the hansel-gretel folder to your plugins directory (/wp-content/plugins/hansel-gretel/).

  4. Activate the plugin through the Plugins page on the WordPress admin.

  5. Add the following snippet to your theme file(s) outside The Loop where you want the breadcrumbs to appear: <?php if (function_exists('HAG_Breadcrumbs')) { HAG_Breadcrumbs(); } ?>

  6. Profit!

Requires: 3.1.0 or higher
