Support » Plugin: Breadcrumb NavXT » Path priority – how?

  • Most posts on my site are in several categories. The breadcrumb path shows one category path. How does Breadcrumb NavXT select the path?
    There is certainly a logic to it, but so far I failed to figure it out.
    Is there a way to select the category that is used for the path?
    Thanks for a hint!

    When dealing with hierarchical taxonomies, Breadcrumb NavXT picks the first taxonomy term that has a parent set. There are ways of setting a preferred term using either an add-on plugin (Paths or Order Bender should work) or writing code to hook into the bcn_pick_post_term filter.

    Hi John,

    Thanks for your reply and suggestions.

    Why does it use “the first taxonomy term that has a parent set” rather than simply The First, parent or not?

    I already installed “Taxonomy Terms Order” and sorted the taxonomies, but for the breadcrumbs that made no difference. “Paths” and “Order Bender” plugins I didn’t find. Would you have links?

    Thank you!

    Since you are using a hierarchical taxonomy, it is assumed that a term with a parent is more useful than one without parent. The breadcrumb trail is trying to display the location of a resource within a site, being more specific (a term with a parent is assumed to be more specific) is more valuable.

    Both Breadcrumb NavXT Paths and Order Bender are not in the .org repo, use Google to search for them.
