Use Breadcrumb in Multisite / Some Bugs

Q&ACategory: PluginUse Breadcrumb in Multisite / Some Bugs
Daniel asked 2 years ago

Hi,
today I purchased a five Domain license and wanted to use it in a multisite of my noncommercial projekt for older people. First I downloaded 1.5 on WP 4.2.1
1) When I activated it in a subdirectory of may multisite themes 5-15 do not work (on 1.4 they do)
2) The Breadcrumb only displays paths to post: home -> Postname. Not the category or blog page.
3) On my blog page it inserts the breadcrumb in each item. How to get that away?
The theme I use is GeneratePress with Premium addons and I inserted the breadcrumb with shortcode.
See it in action here (blog page): http://unser-quartier.de/mitte/aktuelles/ I downgraded to 1.4 to make themes work.
Any ideas to make it work?
Best wishes
Daniel

4)I also inserted it in the root blog. There is the Home-trail duplicated: http://unser-quartier.de/5) It would be great to have a possibility to shorten the text?6) How to remove the last raquo?

Daniel replied 2 years ago

Please forget 3). I inserted the shortcode in the wrong hook.

Welcome to our forum.
Great to see your purchased pro version of this plugin.
1.  Could not understand what do you mean by “multisite themes 5-15”
2. Category should display, can you please give a category link for check the issue.
3. skip as you suggested.
4. yes also can see the double “home”, let me check the issue.
5. page title can be shorten. i will need an update.
6. The last raquo can be removed.
Add following CSS to your site header to remove last raquo 

.breadcrumb-container li:last-child .separator:last-child {
  display: none;
}

 
Best Regards

Thanks for your replay Hasan.

1) When I use “Breadcrumb Themes”, Theming the breadcrumb does not work in 1.5. In 1.4 it works fine. I’ll update to 1.5 again to make this visible for you. There must have been a change in the paths. The active theme on this page http://unser-quartier.de/mitte is “Theme 5”

2) Category works: http://unser-quartier.de/mitte/category/demos/, but not when the post is displayed (click one)

3)  /

4./5.) Looking forward to it

6) Works, thx again

Best, Daniel

Hi Mr. Daniel Please check version 1.6, i have added the option "Breadcrumb Title max word/Character count" so you can choose max length based on word/Character , see the screenshot how its look, Thanks http://i.imgur.com/GHDO4gi.png

Hi, welcome back
#1. go to “Breadcrumb” (Breadcrumb Settings) page on your dashboard and choose color for “Breadcrumb Background Color”, this should solve your issue. in 1.4 version color was static and 1.5 we set diynamic color so you can choose your own color for Theming
2. yes category works fine, you may want to display category in breadcrumb path when its single post but our hook works differently when its category or single page, so that when you are in single page it will display only post title.
4. i have cheeked the plugin its nothing display duplicate “Home” (this is strange to me)
5. i am working on page title shorten, when update ready you will notify via email.
6. Great to know its work, (in update version i will add an option(display/hide) to remove last raquo from settings)
Best Regards

Hello Hasan,
thanks a lot!
Maybe you should set a default value for the colors to make this clear (2).
4) This happens when I set a page as homepage in the settings. In my example I titled it “Home” too. On this site it is called “Startseite”: http://unser-quartier.de/mitte/
Best wishes

Hi Mr. Daniel, Thanks for your reply. have you solved the #1. theming issue ? also please check 1.6 version i have added option for shorten post/page title in breadcrumb , 4. i think issue can’t be solve because the second “Home” come from page title you set “static page” . although i am looking for a better solution to avoid this confusion. Thanks again

Daniel replied 2 years ago

Yes Hasan, when I wrote about default values, this was item 1. Sorry. 1.6 works fine.I really like to cut the titles.

Hasan Staff replied 2 years ago

Please keep in mind shorten title only work for "Post & Page" Title(Single post), i will update later for every element in breadcrumb for any long category/ archive (name)

Hello Hasan,
I think this was mentioned in another thread, but I have the same problem:
7) When I set a page as “blogpage” in the settings, it is ignored in the breadcrumb: http://unser-quartier.de/aktuelles/ (this is my blogpage, titled “Aktuelles”).
Best, Daniel
