[resolved] Breadcrumbs displaying wrong order? (7 posts)

    I have a site where the structure is:
    home - widgets - red widget - small red widget (this one being the post)

    However the breadcrumbs function is showing:
    home - red widget - widgets - small red widget

    Is this the way the breadcrumbs are supposed to be displaying? Seems backwards.

    Haha, that could be a pretty stupid bug :) Is this using a custom taxonomy, by any chance?

    It seems that it happens with multiple sub categories

    So if I have:

    Home - Sub1 - Sub2 - Sub3

    The breadcrumbs show:
    Home - Sub2 - Sub1 - Sub3

    If there are just two sub categories:

    Home - Sub1 - Sub 2

    The breadcrumbs are displayed correctly.

    The update still does not fix the issue entirely. It's working fine for the single page but not on the archives page. This occurs when a category has a parent category.

    Home>Products>Fruits>Apple = single page
    Home>Fruits>Products = archive page

    To solve this I first tried adding:

    if ( count( $parents ) > 1 ) {
    		$parents = array_reverse( $parents );

    to the get_term_parents function inside class-breadcrumbs.php

    But this reverses the problem, now the archive page is displayed correctly but the single post page breadcrumb not.

    So I added an extra condition to the function so the code now looks like this:

    if ( count( $parents ) > 1 && is_archive()) {
    		$parents = array_reverse( $parents );

    This seems to fix it for me!
