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.

The Translation Team:

  1. I’ve just noticed a bug, while checking the source of a site. The html output has duplicate classes: <li class="home" class="home"> and <li class="current_item" class="current_item">

    • What calling code are you using/how are you calling the breadcrumb trail? Also, if you don’t mind, could you take a screenshot of your settings (the general tab) and link to that screenshot so I can take a look?

  2. Hi John,
    (Trying again, this also is saying it is spam – then duplicate content.)

    Sorry, I tried posting this over in the forum, but when I clicked “post comment” yesterday, first it told me my post was spam, then it said it was a duplicate…so I am reposting. I also tried emailing you, and the email bounced back.

    I love your breadcrumb plug-in and I have it working just fine. However, I am needing to use two menus (I am using the plug-in “Menu Swapper”) and so there is one menu for a lighting portfolio and one menu for a theatre portfolio. I really want the individual portfolio images to show their previous page in the breadcrumbs. “Home>Theatre Consulting Projects>Name of theatre” I did see in your settings where you can set a main page as the “Portfolio Root Page” but with two menus, I cannot do this.

    Is there code somewhere that I can change so I can use your breadcrumbs for the Portfolio pages please? I would be so grateful for your help on this!
