Support » Plugin: Breadcrumb NavXT » Update to 4.3 will no longer let me save the settings

  • Resolved Aaron


    Hi Friends –

    I just updated NavXT to 4.3 and it killed my settings. I then migrated the settings over as it asked me to and now it has placed the default settings back in and if I make any changes and save them it totally ignores the changes I made and saves but then goes back to the defaults.

  • I just removed the plugin and reinstalled and I still cannot make any changes to the settings… the save button just does not seem to work.

    What changes to the settings are you trying to make? By chance are you trying to change any of the breadcrumb templates (and use a tag other than a, span, or img)?

    Same issue here cannot save any settings.

    For example, I am trying to change Page Template on the Post Types Tab from:

    <a title="Go to %title%." href="%link%">%htitle%</a>

    to :

    <li><a title="Go to %title%." href="%link%">%htitle%</a></li>
    as I want to use list items, but it won’t save.

    You should be using bcn_display_list() if you want the breadcrumbs wrapped with <li> tags. See

    Ahh OK. It wasn’t obvious that I should do that at all. Also, the latest update broke breadcrumbs layout without any warning that I needed the new function.

    (suppose I should have read the docco)

    The bcn_display_list() function has been around for years now (since 3.2.0, which was released almost 4 years ago), and has been the only officially supported way of wrapping the breadcrumbs with <li> tags. Honestly, I never thought so many people would do things the ‘hard’ way and manually add the <li> wrapping tags to each breadcrumb template. In the end, I need to beef up the documentation to make this more obvious.

    Haha, you’re right. My fault as I should have read the documentation. I’m ashamed as I am a developer and should have known better 🙂

    Always expect users to do the unexpected!
