Q: How do I remove the current item from the breadcrumb trail. E.g. the breadcrumb trail is Home > Category A > Category B > Current Page, and I want to remove “Current Page”
A: True breadcrumb trails include all of the breadcrumbs, including the current page. Therefore there is no built in option for removing the current item. Typically, the motivation behind removing the current item is due to having the page title too close to the breadcrumb trail. Good design will have proper spatial and visual separation between the breadcrumb trail and the page title. This includes proper sizing of both items which alone can provide enough separation.
However, removing the current item isn’t impossible, but it is a task left to the reader. You can also use Breadcrumb NavXT uManager Extension plugin or the Breadcrumb NavXT Remove Current Item Extension plugin.

$post should be returned to it’s original state afterward. The best way of accomplishing this is to call
wp_reset_query() before your Breadcrumb NavXT calling code (most likely
Q: How do I remove the home/blog breadcrumb from the breadcrumb trail?
A: Prior to Breadcrumb NavXT 3.0, there was no easy way to remove the home breadcrumb from the breadcrumb trail. Simply emptying the contents of the “Home Title”/”Blog Title” options will not remove the home breadcrumb. In Breadcrumb NavXT 3.0 the proper way to not include the home breadcrumb is to use the “Home Breadcrumb” option and set it to “Leave the home breadcrumb out of the trail.”.
