Breadcrumb NavXT
Custom Taxonomy last level not showing (4 posts)

    I have a custom post-type called Auction.

    I also have custom taxonomies called Auction Categories.

    However, when I view a product that is more than one level of auction categories deep, the final category doesn't show up in the breadcrumbs.

    Another part of my template uses
    get_the_term_list( get_the_ID(), 'auction_cat', '', ', ', '' ); ?>
    and lists all of the categories for each auction just fine

    For hierarchical taxonomies, please only make a resource (instance of a post type) an explicit member of the lowest (e.g. most specific) taxonomy term in a hierarchy. The resource will automatically be a member of the parent taxonomy terms (it will be an implicit member). Breadcrumb NavXT does not search out the deepest hierarchy but rather the first hierarchy it finds (this is done for performance reasons).

    Thanks for the reply.

    Guess i'll just have to live with that although I can't say I agree that it's the right behaviour for the breadcrumbs.

    Anyone (i.e. my clients who don't know so much) could easily assign a post type to multiple categories several levels deep and be confused when they don't all show up in the breadcrumbs...

    Sorry, didn't mean that to sound so mean! Always grateful for a free plugin :)
