When using the wordpress function
the_category(), I want to know if it is possible to return the categories in a directory or 'breadcrumb' style structure rather than a list or tag style structure.
For example, if I have a category structure as follows:
And I post a post in the categories WordPress, Customization, Plugins.
When I call the
the_category() function within the loop, it will result in something like
Plugins, Customization, WordPress
but I was wondering if it is possible to return something more like
WordPress > Customization > Plugins
It seems that WP is designed to use categories more like tags, rather than a strict directory structure, seeing as it is possible to attribute a post to categories Customization and Installation, continuing with my previous example.
I was just wondering if it is possible to achieve my desired result, or if there are any plugins that currently do this.
Thanks in advance,
