Support » Plugin: Breadcrumb NavXT » Problem with forum breadcrumbs

  • Hi

    the above link is one example and I must have a setting wrong.

    At the moment I also have the bbp style pack breadcrumbs activated as a comparison. For the above page it should be:

    Support Forum › General Information › Miscellaneous › Feature Requests

    But with yours I am getting:

    Theocratic Software > Topics > feature requests > Feature Requests

    Here is other examples:

    bbp style pack: Support Forum › Meeting Schedule Assistant › Midweek Editor — Template Samples

    Yours: Theocratic Software > Support Forum > Forums > Midweek Editor — Template Samples

    I can’t work out the configuration right.

    I have set the root forum page in settings but beyond that ….

    Thanks for help!

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    It sounds like something changed in bbPress since I last played with it (and the Breadcrumb NavXT bbPress extensions plugin doesn’t seem to do the correct thing any longer). I’ll have to dig into what’s going on and I’ll get back to you.

    I am most grateful. Thank you.

    I am using latest bbPress.


    Here is another page “Advanced Search”

    It does not show the right breadcrumbs either.

    I leave it with you.

    Search and user pages within bbPress do not use WordPress post types or taxonomies, so other, very bbPress specific code has to be used to support that. Much of that belongs in the Breadcrumb NavXT bbPress Extensions plugin. It looks like search was brought up a while ago, I just have never had time to implement it (see I think I have things other than search and user pages working correctly again. It does require the bbPress Extensions plugin in conjunction with a couple of changes in Breadcrumb NavXT. The Breadcrumb NavXT changes will make the next release (feature or bugfix, whichever comes first).

    Thanks! Do I have to download the extension plugin manually from GitHub as I couldn’t find it via WordPress search.

    I installed the extra plugin manually. Didn’t know about it. I will also subscribe to your GitHub project.

    Hi !

    Do you know when the updates might be available?

    Search should now work when using the latest version of Breadcrumb NavXT bbPress extensions from github.


    I have added some replies to the GitHub issue (should have probably started a new issue). Whilst things are improved I am still having a problem where the breadcrumbs lists “Topics” in the path instead of the correct parent route. You will see this on the GitHub issue.

    For clarification, there was a change made to Breadcrumb NavXT (available on the in the GitHub “master” branch, see that fixes a behavior seen with the different post types (it’s a generic change so it is in the core plugin).

    Additionally, in general, you will want to check that the following Breadcrumb NavXT settings are the following:
    Forum Archive Display: checked
    Forum Hierarchy Display: unchecked
    Topic Archive Display: checked
    Topic Hierarchy Display: checked
    Topic Hierarchy: Post Parent
    This should, agree with the recommendations in the bbPress compatibility article.

    Thanks. I have put my response in the GitHub issue ticket.
