Yoast Breadcrumbs
yoast breadcrumbs displaying twice in child pages (3 posts)

    I am having an issue where the Yoast breadcrumbs are not showing up on the main pages (ie parent pages) but are showing up in the child page....but showing up twice in the child pages. Through FireBug I can see that the code I added is being called correctly:

    <?php if ( function_exists('yoast_breadcrumb') ) {
    yoast_breadcrumb('<div id="breadcrumbs">','</div>');
    } ?>

    , but somewhere the default breadcrumbs code is also being called. The problem is, I can't for the life of me figure out where the default code is being called:

    <?php if ( function_exists('yoast_breadcrumb') ) {
    yoast_breadcrumb('<p id="breadcrumbs">','</p>');
    } ?>

    I'm using the Roots theme and the funny thing is the breadcrumbs work great on another site I did (with a different theme) so I don't understand what's going wrong here.

    This will happen if the function is being called twice. When you're working with template files and child page,s this can happen pretty easily.

    I'd start off by looking at the header.php file to see if the code is in there as well. If it's not there I'd hope that your editor can do a global search to find what other files that code is on. If the code is only in one place, then it must be a template file that's being called two times somehow.

    That's the funny thing, I've already looked in all relevant files and can find no instance of the code anywhere. It is somehow being automatically inserted but I can't seem to find where this is happening. Oddly enough, the site is now displaying just one set of breadcrumbs as I took my code out. But it's not displaying breadcrumbs for any parent pages, only child pages. What the heck is going on here? I've also tried the WordPress SEO plugin from the same author as Yoast and no luck.

    The site in question is so you can see for yourself.

    Any thoughts or suggestions?
