    Nice, simple plug-in - thank you!

    Some helpful tips for other users...

    If you are adding the class '.breadcrumb' to your themes css, you will need to add the '!important' property to your padding and font-size styles, within the class, as the plug-in adds it's own '.breadcrumb' class styles into the head of the document and without '!important' these will take priority.

    The 'Home' link of the breadcrumb currently uses the blogs name as the text for the link. To change this to 'Home' (or whatever you require) change the following line in 'breadcrumb.php':

    bloginfo('name');

    to:

    echo "Home";

    To exclude breadcrumbs from the homepage, change the line you added to page.php (or wherever you put it) from:

    <?php if(function_exists(simple_breadcrumb)) {simple_breadcrumb();} ?>

    to:

    <?php if(function_exists(simple_breadcrumb) && !is_front_page()) {simple_breadcrumb();} ?>

    I have been trying out loads of breadcrumb plugins for my WordPress website (BrickExtra) and this one seems to be the only one that works properly for my theme (Mystique). My only problem with it is that the text that makes up the breadcrumbs is too small (I can hardly read it!). How would I go about making the text bigger?

    Thanks in advance! :)

    Hi Yodaman,

    All you need to do is add a '.breadcrumb' class to your style.css file.

    In case you're not familiar with the process: style.css can be edited in the dashboard by going to 'Appearance - Editor'. style.css is usually the default file loaded into the editor window. If it's not then it can be found in the right hand column, near the bottom of the list.

    Add in the following, substituting 14px for a size that fits your needs:

    .breadcrumb {
    	font-size:14px;
    }

    You can add all kind of styles to that class to control the look of the breadcrumbs.

    cokeyblokey, Thanks so much! :) I have added the code and tweaked the font size to how I like it. My breadcrumbs now look much better! See them here.

    Thanks again! ;)
