    Hi

    I am getting the message “Please enable the breadcrumb option to use this shortcode!” whilst using the shortcode within a ubermenu custom content menu item. I have Yoast SEO plugin installed and activated. Using the Total Theme by the way. Any ideas?

    I basically want to style the breadcrumbs using the css below in my child theme but no success with the yoast shortcode or this one.

    /* =breadcrumbs yoast
    ————————————————————– */
    #breadcrumbs {
    font-family:Arial,Verdana,sans-serif;
    font-size: 24px;
    line-height: 1.4em;
    font-weight: 600;
    margin: 0px;
    color: White;
    background-color: #0060AF;
    }
    #breadcrumbs a:link,
    #breadcrumbs a:visited {
    text-decoration: none;
    font-size: 24px;
    line-height: 1.4em;
    font-weight: 600;
    margin: 0px;
    color: White;
    background-color: #0060AF;
    }
    #breadcrumbs a:active,
    #breadcrumbs a:hover {
    text-decoration: underline;
    font-size: 24px;
    line-height: 1.4em;
    font-weight: 600;
    margin: 0px;
    color: White;
    background-color: #0060AF;

    }
    #breadcrumb-spacer {
    }

    Hi,

    as the message says, you have to enable the breadcrumb option (SEO -> Advanced menu) to use the shortcode. So let’s enable it and everything will work! 🙂

    It is enabled as it shows breadcrumb when using the [wpseo_breadcrumbs] shortcode. When I go into YOAST SEO advanced menu there is no enabler/disabler switch for breadcrumbs but as I said they are showing. Enabling or disabling breadcrumbs in the theme has no effect.

    Then you are in the wrong place. There is an option to enable/disable breadcrumbs.

    > Enabling or disabling breadcrumbs in the theme has no effect.

    This is not a theme option.

    And final thoughts, there is no need to use my shortcode, when you can use Yoast’s own shortcode.
