Support » Plugin: Schema & Structured Data for WP & AMP » Confused by Breadcrumbs – what breadcrumbs is being marked up?

    WP does not output breadcrumbs. We have a custom theme, and no breadcrumbs.

    So what breadcrumbs is your plugin marking up when I check the box?

    I started to write my own breadcrumbs, but you cant mark that up, its my custom code.

    Do I need another supported breadcrumb plugin? If so, what ones do you markup?

    Thanks

    We generate breadcrumbs based on permalink setup. It has nothing to do related to the theme.

    Ok thanks, so therefore how can I display this generated breadcrumbs? As nothing is displayed on the site. We use a custom theme, its a child theme of DIVI.

    For info what I am trying to do is show breadcrumbs on the site, and have that with Schema markup.

    We have our own breadcrumbs code, and when I install your plugin obviously it does not markup our breadcrumbs. Ideally I would not want to modify my code for custom schema but show breadcrumbs that can have your schema added, so your plugin controls the breadcrumbs markup, not our bespoke code.

    Can you please share the URL of your website?

    It’s a DIVI site, and uses DIVI theme builder. So no code will automatically be added.

    So I create our own breadcrumbs code using a shortcode.

    In the DIVI theme I then add the shortcode in the header to output breadcrumbs.

    So your plugin would not change our markup, nor would it auto show any breadcrumbs as its a bespoke theme using DIVI theme builder.

    If your plugin creates breadcrumbs HTML then I would expect to call it via a shortcode or function so I can add into my theme.

    So I just need to know how to show breadcrumbs using your markup.

    Otherwise, I found the plugin Breadcrumbs NavXT which also marks up its own breadcrumbs, so maybe I should use that instead of your plugin (for breadcrumbs).

    Thanks for the detailed information. For this, we don’t have this feature at this moment. We have raised a GitHub ticket in our repository. Our developer will work on it and push it in the upcoming updates.

    For reference please refer to the below GitHub link:

    Ok thanks. In that case I am confused by your breadcrumbs feature. The plugin states it marks up breadcrumbs. What breadcrumbs, as your plugin does not output any?

    In the meantime I have used NavXT Breadcrumbs which adds markup, then your plugin can markup other stuff.

    Thanks

    Currently, we are only outputting the breadcrumbs markup for the schema, not in the front end. In this ticket, we will build a feature to output in the frontend as well.

    So the plugin adds breadcrumb schema code behind the scenes, but not visible breadcrumbs? Ok so that explains it. The features state “Breadcrumbs Listing Support” so its not clear, I assumed it would support breadrcumbs.

    If a website uses breadcrumbs I dont see a reason to have separate markup, especially if your markup may create different breadcrumbs to the visible one. So its good if you decide to add a visible breadcrumb output.

    Yes, we are going to do that in the ticket with an update.

    Our developer has been fixed it in our latest update 1.9.84. Can you please update it to the latest version and let us know back if it fixes the issue?
