Surbma – Yoast Breadcrumb Shortcode

Description

A simple shortcode to include Yoast’s breadcrumb function everywhere on your WordPress website. You have to install and activate the WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin and enable breadcrumb option to use this shortcode.

With this shortcode you can put Yoast’s fantastic breadcrumb feature manually into every post and page or even into custom post types. If your theme supports it, you can use this shortcode in your widget areas with the Text widget.

The shortcode:
[yoast-breadcrumb]

There are two parameters for this shortcode:

  1. before – The code that your breadcrumb should be prefixed with. Default value: <div class="breadcrumb" itemprop="breadcrumb">
  2. after – The code that should be added on the back of your breadcrumb. Default value: </div>

Yes, you can with css. The default class for this block is breadcrumb, but you can modify the prefix code, as you like.

Doesn’t Yoast SEO plugin have it’s own shortcode?

Yes, it does have a shortcode [wpseo-breadcrumb], but it does not accept any parameters, so my shortcode is a little bit better. 🙂

It is the reverse version of my last name. 😉

Reviews

Not supported in WordPress 4.3.1

I like the idea of this plugin. It picks up where the Yoast plugin leaves off by adding breadcrumbs to the rest of your pages which Google is looking for. I just can’t get it running on WordPress 4.3.1.

Nice.

Super simple to install and add to any page or post.

However, adding it manually instead of a sitewide setting can be bit of a problem. It would be nice to see some basic settings of customizing it, such as no background or background transparency, change text color etc.

Can you please provide the CSS code to modify it?

See an example of what we did:
http://www.stressebook.com/blog/
This one was in the blog settings feature area, where you can add HTML, shortcodes or anything else to show up just below the header.

<div class="breadcrumb">
<pre><code>[yoast-breadcrumb]</code></pre>
</div>

We can also add it within each blog post at the top of the post in the editor. We used the HTML tab instead of the View tab in the editor.
