Breadcrumb NavXT WordPress Breadcrumb Plugin

If you have arrived at this page you know what Breadcrumbs are and your trying to add them to a wordpress site that doesn’t include the functionality built in or you have removed the Yoast SEO plugin and you lost your breadcrumbs. The latter is why I wrote this post. I was a long time user of the Yoast SEO Premium plugin but quite simply it became too expensive. While I could revert back to the free version it was insufficient for me needs. I chose instead to use the  ‘All In one Seo” plugin. Recently i was working on a post at my photography website DSLRPRO when I noticed the breadcrumbs missing. That site uses the Catch Themes “Catch Box Pro” WordPress theme. Catch Box Pro theme cannot natively generate breadcrumbs as of this time. A quick search on the forum and I noticed the Catch Themes staff were recommending the Breadcrumb NavXT WordPress Plugin. I was surprised that such a massively downloaded plugin was not on my radar or the blogs that I follow. probably because it’s very good and free. Anyhow the plugin is highly configurable, works like a charm and it’s free. If you want to see it in action visit my photography website listed above.
