Support » Plugin: Breadcrumb NavXT » breadcrumbs history based ?

  • hello Navxt,

    I would like to add history based ( no category or hierarchy) breacrumbs to my static pages. I don’t have a blog or posts. When customizing NavXT settings- post types I have chosen ‘Post Parent’.

    There is this additional message:

    The hierarchy which the breadcrumb trail will show. Note that the “Post Parent” option may require an additional plugin to behave as expected since this is a non-hierarchical post type.

    Example page above:from ‘Lesrooster Overzicht’ choose Pilates essentials (orange arrow> then click on lesrooster button at the bottom of the page.
    At the moment the breadcrumb trail just shows ‘home’ and the page I’m actually on. No trail of pre-visited pages. Is it possible to create history based breadcrumbs? Which extra plugin do I need?

    Thank you so much

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Breadcrumb NavXT generated location based breadcrumb trails, what you are describing sounds like path based breadcrumb trails. That is, path based breadcrumb trails show the path a user took to reach a resource. These types of trails are problematic and are not natively supported by Breadcrumb NavXT (have to track a user to generate them properly, which now requires consent in many jurisdictions, additionally it duplicates the function of the back button in the browser). There are ways to generate quasi path based breadcrumb trails with Breadcrumb NavXT, but that is mostly for picking a taxonomy term or taxonomy when there are multiple options.
