Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Breadcrumb link for blog when paged or date view

  • Hi, is it possible to have the breadcrumb link activated when on a paged view, or when viewing a date archive (or other archives as well)? Option “Show blog page” is set to “Show” currently.


    Current breadcrumb: Home | Blog

    Current breadcrumb: Home | Blog
    Expected breadcrumb: Home | Blog | Page 2 of 4

    Current breadcrumb: Home | Archives for January 2021
    Expected breadcrumb: Home | Blog | Archives for January 2021

    Thank you!

  • Hi @coreyw,

    We can see that you’d like to see the Blog link and the title of the date archive pages.

    Can you give us more details about what type of archive page “Blog” is? Is it set as the front page, a category, or some other type of posts page?

    Also, have you changed any of the settings under SEO > Search Appearance > Breadcrumbs?

    @priscillamc Blog is just the page assigned as “Posts page:” in the WordPress’ Reading settings page.

    Under the SEO settings I have following set:
    Separator between breadcrumbs: /
    Anchor text for the Homepage: Site Name
    Show Blog page: Show

    The rest are defaults.

    Hi @coreyw,

    Unfortunately, there isn’t a way for the Blog link using the plugin interface, but you can add it using one of the available Yoast filters like wpseo_breadcrumb_links.

    You can find a similar code example here: Breadcrumb code examples.

    Yes, but I think that those two examples I’ve given should be built in with the default plugin itself. It seems incomplete as it is now.

    Thank you.

    You’ll have to use one of the filters available specific for modifying the breadcrumbs.
