How to Add Breadcrumbs feature to your WP Blog


What is a Breadcrumb?

Breadcrumbs typically appear horizontally across the top of a web page, usually below title bars or headers. They provide links back to each previous page the user navigated through to get to the current page or—in hierarchical site structures—the parent pages of the current one. Breadcrumbs provide a trail for the user to follow back to the starting or entry point. Generally, a greater than (>) serves as hierarchy separator.

Typical breadcrumbs look like this:

Home page > Section page > Subsection page

Easily add breadcrumbs to your template. If you’re using one of the supported WordPress frameworks, it’s as easy as enabling the plugin and checking the “Try to add automatically box”, if you’re not using one of those, adding it is as simple as adding one line of code to your template!
