This is the first, and hopefully only, bug fix release of the 5.5 branch of Breadcrumb NavXT. One bug was fixed in this release. Breadcrumb NavXT 5.5.0 introduced a bug on sites that use static front pages.
On sub-pages (of the page post type), a breadcrumb representing the page for posts would be erroneously included in the breadcrumb trail. This was due to a bug in
bcn_breadcrumb_trail::find_type() that identified pages as posts. Previously, this did not cause a problem due to redundant code in
bcn_breadcrumb_trail::do_root(). That code was removed in a cleanup of
bcn_breadcrumb_trail::do_root() in 5.5.0. As part of an ongoing effort to add automated testing for Breadcrumb NavXT, unit tests were added to capture this bug (should further changes to
do_root() cause it to reappear.
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.
