Support » Plugin: Menu Breadcrumb » Category Menus

  • I was so hopeful your plugin would work for me. I was trying to build something similar myself then came across your plugin. I found this plugin via your blog post. Anyways, my menu is based on categories. When viewing a specific post in a category the breadcrumbs aren’t being shown. I think this is because I don’t have the specific post linked within the menu (you mentioned this in your blog post). It fails because the URLs aren’t matching.

    I think you could probably make this work by looking at the permalink settings. My permalink is set up for /%category%/%postname%/ and my Category Base is articles.

    The URL for my post is

    But your is_at_url function is testing it against this correct category url:

    With a regex you could probably make these URLs give a positive match based on the permalink settings.

    For example:
    Based on the permalink you could strip off %postname% from the post URL and prepend the Category Base. This would provide a match.
    But I guess if /%category%/ isn’t part of the permalink settings, this wouldn’t work. Something to think about though!

    Ran into the same problem, and this plugin doesn’t quite work for any page that does not have a permalink that is accurate when returned by get_permalink().

    I modified the code to use global PHP variables to detect the url, which made it work.

    In class-menu-breadcrumb.php change the line which reads:

    $current_url = $this->format_url( get_permalink( $post->ID ) );

    to read:

    $current_url = rtrim($_SERVER[‘HTTP_HOST’].$_SERVER[‘REQUEST_URI’],’/’);

    and we’re good to go.
