Breadcrumb NavXT Paths

Breadcrumb NavXT Paths adds support for path influenced breadcrumbs to Breadcrumb NavXT. With Breadcrumb NavXT Paths, the breadcrumb trail generated for a post (of any post type) that is a member of multiple terms of the same taxonomy type will be influenced by what term archive the user previously visited.

If the user did not arrive at the post from a term archive, Breadcrumb NavXT Paths will attempt to use the preferred term for that post. Should the post not have a preferred term, it falls back to Breadcrumb NavXT’s default term selection.

Introduced in version 1.5, Breadcrumb NavXT Paths provides an option in the term edit screen for hierarchical terms that allows said terms to be mapped to a page. When a term is mapped to a page, Breadcrumb NavXT will use that page in place of the term archive and title in the breadcrumb trail.

Features

  • Automatically selects the term hierarchy for a post based off of the user’s previously visited term archive
    • Note that this feature may not work with caching plugins as it depends on server-side the detection of the referring page
  • Supports picking the term based off of the “Preferred” term for the post in Yoast SEO
  • Includes “Preferred Term” metabox in the post editor for setting the preferred term if none of the supported SEO plugins are active
  • Supports mapping hierarchical terms to pages via a “Page Map for Breadcrumbs” term option in the term editor
