Breadcrumb NavXT Multidimension Extensions 1.8.0

It’s been a long time coming, but Breadcrumb NavXT Multidimension Extensions is now available on the WordPress.org plugins repository. As part of this ‘move’, a new release is available, version 1.8.0. For version 1.8.0, the plugin was heavily re-factored, and support for Breadcrumb NavXT 5.1 was added (while maintaining support for Breadcrumb NavXT 5.0).

You can grab Breadcrumb NavXT Multidimension Extensions from the WordPress.org plugin repository.

Breadcrumb NavXT and WPML Compatibility

In the past two days, I took the time to investigate possible compatibility issues between Breadcrumb NavXT and WPML. Within Breadcrumb NavXT, every attempt is made to use the WordPress API, when possible, to maximize the compatibility with other plugins such as WPML. Occasionally, this is not enough and the findings of this investigation are presented in this article.

WPMark Twenty Twelve

WPMark consists of two components: a WordPress plugin and a JMeter test plan. The WordPress plugin populates an empty install with the requisite demo content, sets up the requisite options, and generates cached copies of portions of the site for testing.

Breadcrumb NavXT 5.0.1

This is the first bug fix release of the 5.0 branch of Breadcrumb NavXT. There were several issues reported with the 5.0.0 release and most have been fixed in this release. An issue where the bcn_display_list() produced duplicate code attributes in the output. The settings page tabs’ style has been adjusted to fit better with WordPress 3.8’s reskinned admin area. Additionally, users will be warned if their settings will be overridden by a BCN_SETTINGS_* define. Finally, a few issues in the uninstaller caused by the change in plugin structure were fixed.

As always, you can grab the latest version of Breadcrumb NavXT from the Breadcrumb NavXT page. If you experience any issues with this version of Breadcrumb NavXT, please leave a comment on this post detailing the issue.

Breadcrumb NavXT 5.0.0

Holy Network Admin settings page Batman! As mentioned earlier, starting with 5.0, Breadcrumb NavXT now includes a Network Admin settings page and several settings modes to set the flow down of settings in multisite WordPress installs. The details on the changes in the flow of settings is covered in Controlling Breadcrumb NavXT Settings From the Network Settings Page.

In addition to the new Network Admin settings page, a major refactoring of the plugin has taken place. File organization has changed, with each class residing in its own file. A new top level loader class now exists so that the settings pages are only loaded when necessary. For more on the organizational changes in 5.0 please read Changes to Note Before Upgrading to Breadcrumb NavXT 5.0.

Three new filters were added in 5.0 these are:

  • bcn_breadcrumb_trail_object
  • bcn_li_attributes
  • bcn_breadcrumb_types

Please see the Breadcrumb NavXT Documentation for more information on these and other filters.

Additionally, xmlns:v and property were added as valid HTML tag attributes to aid in support of microformat breadcrumb standards. A few bugs were fixed, including a bug where the current item could have the wrong protocol (HTTP instead of HTTPS) in search result pages. Finally, you may need to reactivate Breadcrumb NavXT since the file containing the plugin header changed in 5.0.
