It would be so handy if you could insert a clickable link to the blog page into the breadcrumb trail. WordPress/Genesis does not do this by default, which makes it impossible to navigate your way up the category hierarchy to the top of the blog.
For example, I have a category entitled Announcements on my blog. If I’m reading a post in that category, I get these breadcrumbs:
Home > Announcements > my post title
What I would like to have is this trail of breadcrumbs:
Home > Blog > Announcements > my post title
That way, visitors can easily navigate up the category hierarchy all the way to the top of the blog. Breadcrumbs would become an even more valuable navigation tool if you could fill in this gap.
Would you please consider adding a feature like this?
P.S. I have a work-around which involves creating a top-most category called Blog and removing the category base, but it’s a lot of extra work just to do something WordPress/Genesis arguably should do anyway! Inserting the blog page into the breadcrumb trail is a much simpler solution.
P.P.P.S. I’ve looked into it, and the Breadcrumb NavXT plugin is not fully compatible with the widgetized home page created by the Genesis framework. I’ve described the problem in more detail on the support forum for that plugin:
