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.


  • 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
