Site Breadcrumbs

This element allows you to add and style breadcrumbs across your site. Includes support for schema markup, displaying nested taxonomies, custom post types & customization over the output, prefixes etc.

Use BricksExtras markup, or your preferred plugin

The BricksExtras breadcrumbs follows Google’s recommended markup with structured data and will be sufficient for most site structures.

However, every SEO plugin has a slightly different opinion on how breadcrumbs should be structured and configured, which may be based on individual page settings that you already configured with that plugin.

So to cover all cases..

If you instead prefer to use the output/configuration from an SEO plugin you’re using, you can also just use this element to output and style the breadcrumb links directly from the plugin you’re using to manage your breadcrumbs instead.

Each breadcrumb source has its own settings, depending on what the SEO plugin allows for. For some of them, setting up the breadcrumbs behavior would be done from their settings page.

Supported sources for breadcrumbs..

General settings for all breadcrumbs

Breadcrumbs prefix: A prefix can be added to any the different breadcrumb, regardless of the source. eg ‘You are here: ‘

Link styles: Style just the links from the breadcrumb list. (See example styling in the screenshot at the top of these docs) These styles can be applied to any breadcrumbs, regardless of source.

Current item: Style the breadcrumb for the ‘current’ page only. Currently not available if using ‘All in One SEO’ as the breadcrumb source.
